During the summertime period, many of us constantly check the weather, so that we could plan our daytime activities or just to know how to dress. Local Temperature has been conveniently released for this season, but it is so much more than a weather application and not in a good way. Our researchers have classified it as adware, because it displays third-party advertisements. The ads are a potential security threat so we recommend users that they remove Local Temperature, and get another weather application or just use the built-in application found on Windows 8.1, 8, 7, and Vista. It is obvious that the application is malicious. However, a more in-depth analysis of it is required to establish a concrete argument against keeping it.

Local Temperature is not all that necessary given the fact that integrated Microsoft applications do a much better job. The program has to versions, one is free but ad-supported, and the other is paid, but ad-free. The infection can be downloaded from a website called Localtemperature.net. Of course, we do not advertise the application, but is necessary to make the infection source public, so that everyone may know what hides behind all the gloss. During the research, we did not find any clones of the application, which suggests that this is a completely new infection.

It is claimed that the application automatically detects your location and displays the current temperature and other weather-related information. But during the research the application did not find the location were our 411-spywre.com staff is situated. Several test resulted in the same outcome, the application constantly showed that the location was New York and that the temperature is 72 degrees Fahrenheit. The application appears to be broken, but its advertisement showing capabilities are not.

The application does not install any browser extensions to display the advertisements. Instead, the program works as an executable Windows program. Local Temperature is not a very aggressive program, as it only shows ads on certain websites. So, you may see more advertisements on online shopping websites than on other sites. But still, the advertisements might promote fictitious content, such as system utilities, anti-virus programs, software updates, and so on. This is how your computer can be infected with ransomware, rogue applications, and various Trojans, among other things, provided that you click an advertisement. So that is the main reason why you should remove the program.

The second reason why you should get rid of it is the fact that it can collect personally identifiable information by using browser cookies, web beacons, JavaScript, and so on. It collects information via Local Temperature its website and all websites that are affiliated to Local Temperature. Information that can be obtained varies. But it ranges from browsing and search history o full names and addresses. So, this program actually can infringe your privacy right without you being aware of it. The collected information is used for marketing purposes, but there is no way of knowing is what hands this information will end up.
