DealPlyDealPly is the program that displays advertisements on Dell, Wallmart, Amazon, and other advertising websites or deceptive pages to trick you into visiting affiliated pages by clicking on pop-ups marked with Ads by DealPly. The only interaction developers of the PUP need is page views and clicks on pop-ups, banners, and blinking boxes because all this traffic can get monetized later on. Adware-type intruders mainly focus on delivering commercial content and triggering redirect to similar pages, so information can be gathered and tracked for later advertising campaigns during which you get targeted using personalized advertising material. You should get rid of the program as soon as you notice any symptoms and potentially dangerous behavior, so privacy issues can be avoided.

Even though DealPly Ads gets promoted online as a useful feature, and you think you need this in your life – online ads are not promoting trustworthy tools and browser extensions. Especially when redirects keep you from accessing common content and sites that you often visit. These online traffic reroutes and additional pop-ups, other processes significantly affect the performance and speed of your machine.

It is known that adware like DealPly Ads can install browser content that also helps to display advertisements directly on the victim’s browser. This PUP also has a modular code and robust C&C infrastructure. This service can avoid detections and gather information about users on the command and control servers.

DealPly abuses the SmartScreen service that is a security feature designed to warn Windows users when visiting potentially malicious domains that are indicated as deceptive or pushing malware. Recommended processes and warnings also appear when users try to install malicious applications. This adware takes advantage of the feature and manages to infect the machine without getting detected.[1]

Also, the DealPly virus uses infiltrated computers as a distributed network of machines for harvesting this data. It delivers an empty request to the C2 server and hashes the URL to the query. Developers also implement the technique that allows them to update their installers ahead of AV tools and lowers their detection rate. It makes this adware more persistent and immune to AV tools. 

However, some engines still can detect the threat, so rely on anti-malware tools to remove DealPly ads by scanning the machine fully. The following detection names can differ from tool to tool:

  • Adware:Win32/DealPly,
  • Adware/DealPly
  • Adware.DealPly,
  • BrowserModifier:Win32/DealPly

This program may easily bombard you with unwanted pop-up ads, banners, redirects, and notifications that may show up on each of your web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome or Safari. In addition, these ads may redirect you to unknown and very suspicious websites that are actively trying to increase their page rank or sales. That’s why you should stay away from these programs and content delivered by DealPly.

Finally, this program may start tracking your browsing on the web for getting more knowledge about your browsing habits.[3] If you don’t want to reveal your personally non-identifiable information, you should remove DealPly as soon as possible.

Shady techniques of adware infiltration

Adware-type program or any PUP can be downloaded manually from its official website and its associates, promotional ads, or free download pages. However, on most of the occasions, such intruders get inside the system through unprotected parts of the device or in a bundle with other suspicious programs.

If you want to avoid such infiltration, you should uncheck the pre-checked checkmark that claims that you want to install all applications from the list on the system. For getting such ability, you should select Custom or Advanced installation options on the freeware installation setup.

Otherwise, the unwanted program may modify your system’s settings and then may start interrupting you with its coupons and deals. If you choose Recommended or Quick installations, every app that is included on the list gets automatically loaded straight on the machine. Please, remove the suspicious application immediately if you haven’t installed it yourself and make sure to go through settings that got altered by the PUP.
