Aducky is a self-proclaimed ‘world’s largest developers ad network’. Of course, most computer users will face the services of the network via suspicious computer applications and browser extensions which may use completely different names. As malware researchers have discovered, in most cases the advertisement supported service is presented as the System Update kb70007 and the Video Helper web browser extension. The system update can be installed onto Windows operating systems and the plugin can be found on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. Unfortunately, these programs can be installed without your permission, and so we advise that you delete Aducky related software.

Even though Aducky claims to install third party service by Shefa Media Ltd, malware researchers have discovered that the aforementioned applications could be installed with the help of third party software distributors. Our malware researchers have discovered that the Aducky software can be bundled with Somoto installers, v9 redirect virus, Hyper Brows, PastaQuotes adware, Freesofttoday and other highly suspicious applications. It has been discovered that all of these programs could be presented via one installer initially suggesting PC Optimizer Pro. Note that Aducky may be identified as Aducky Pops Addon.

In the Aducky Privacy Policy it is disclosed that the software related to this ad network can serve online advertisements, coupons, sponsored messages, photos, graphics and other offers. Furthermore, it is disclosed that these offers could be used to expose you to content that is inaccurate and offensive. The developer of this software cannot control the information you are presented with via the pop-ups and banner offers because they are produced by third party advertisers. You need to be careful with these offers, especially if they promote freeware installers, suspicious updates and other questionable services. Note that Aducky is an advertisement supported service and it may be linked to unreliable activity.

Aducky removal is a complicated task, primarily because this application employs applications which are identified by different names. Furthermore, these applications can travel bundled with other software, which means that you may need to delete other advertisement supported programs, PUPs and maybe even malware at the same time.
