Technical Details

Adware:W32/FunWeb is a family of adware programs that typically display unsolicited advertising content, usually in the form of pop-up windows during the web browsing session or on the desktop.

FunWeb variants are usually distributed bundled with other desired programs, such as games, browser plug-ins or utility programs.

Specific variants in the FunWeb family may perform additional unauthorized actions, such as redirecting the web browser home page or downloading additional components onto the machine.
