Possible Hiburim malware and associated programs, including added browser add-ons and extensions often have permission to access and gain user information such as a user’s comprehensive browsing activity and history, as well as information about bookmarks and browser themes. This information is used to serve targeted advertisements through multiple internet browsers and may also be submitted to third-party contractors (marketing and mailing lists).

Internet users may also encounter unsolicited browser redirects when opening a new browser window, opening a new browser tab, or searching the web using the browser address or omni bar.

Advertisements displayed by this program are delivered in many different types and are often recognized by text that says something similar to Ads by Hiburim,” although these advertisements may be served by additional third-party adware and advertising platforms.
