- Threat Level:
Bundlore is adware. It “bundles” malicious or intrusive applications together with a legitimate program that the user is attempting to install. During the installation process, the user is prompted to install these malicious add-ons alongside the application that they actually want. The option to accept the unwanted applications often comes selected by default in the installer interface.
If the user installs the bundled malware along with the principal application, they may face such nuisances as pop-ups, advertisements, and unwanted toolbars added to their browser. The adware also opens the door to more serious privacy and security threats, since Bundlore can serve up malicious applications that log user web activity, search data, and IP addresses.
While malware detection and removal tools like MacScan are able to eliminate Bundlore adware, users are advised to take a basic precaution to avoid an initial infection: Never download applications from outside of the Mac App Store, with the only exception being apps from known and trusted third-party software developers.
