Meridian PopUpper Spyware Profile

Meridian PopUpper is a spyware program that generates pop-up advertising.  It was first discovered on June 30 of 2002.  Its controlling server is at thumbsnatcher.com.  It was created by TBI Corporation, which seems to be defunct.

If you are infected with Meridian PopUpper, you probably got it from an ActiveX enabled drive-by download.  It’s possible that you had another spyware infection when you got Meridian PopUpper, since the transmission seems to be mostly from pop-up ads with adult content.

For the most part, Meridian PopUpper is merely adware.  Its advertising is not customized based on your browsing history or computer profile.  The ads are universally pornography related.

Its spyware capability is that it downloads updates from its controlling server.  These files are arbitrary, and it is possible for it to download more adware and spyware, and possibly viruses and worms.

Meridian PopUpper is more than a simple nuisance.  It poses a potential threat to your computer’s functionality.  If you are infected, you should remove it promptly with a trusted spyware removal tool such as ZookaWare PC Cleaner.  Manual removal is highly technical, time consuming and potentially hazardous to your computer, so it is not recommended.

    I recently reactivated Norton Internet Security firewall and realized that it is detecting intrusion attempts by something called Adware.Meridian.I tried to delete it, when I couldn’t stand the pop-ups. Nothing helped, so a friend told me to try with SpyZooka. I never heard about it, but for sure I’m going to use it for now on. It helped me to get my computer clean.

    My brother went on my laptop and after that I found some virus called Meridian PopUpper. I tried to remove it, but my anti spyware wasn’t that good… I found SpyZooka and my computer is cleaner and faster.
