Behavior


When Spyware.Marketscore is installed on a computer, it starts a proxy service. Once this service runs, all the Internet connections will be routed through the Marketscore's proxy (OSSProxy).

The publisher claims to improve the speed of the Internet connection by using OSSProxy. However, because all of your Internet connections will go through the Marketscore's proxy, and your Internet usage information may be logged and submitted to Marketscore's customer companies, this could create security risks.

The files are detected as Spyware.Marketscore.

Transmission


This spyware is manually installed.
