SupaSeek Spyware Profile

SupaSeek is a spyware program disguised as a toolbar add-on for your browser.  It was first discovered on December 9 of 2003.  It is unknown who created it, and is powered by the web server, supaseek.com.

SupaSeek is installed on your computer either manually by an ActiveX installer or as part of an ad-supported freeware bundle.  Once installed, it starts delivering pop-ups with adult related content.

SupaSeek also has spyware data mining capabilities.  That is, it can search through your browsing history and monitor your browsing so it can collect data to send to its server at supaseek.com, supposedly to make its advertising more user-specific.  It does this by keystroke logging and collecting information about the websites you visit.  However, the content of the pop-ups doesn’t change, so it is actually unknown what the purpose of the data mining is.  One known aspect of the data mining is that it accesses your mail accounts and collects your contacts.

The activity of SupaSeek can seriously slow down your computer’s performance.  It can also potentially cause your Internet browser to crash.  It also presents a potential privacy risk.  Any supposed benefits it promises–in this case, browsing convenience and pop-up blocking (both of which are redundant)–are not worth compromising your computer and your privacy.

If you are infected with SupaSeek, you should remove it immediately with ZookaWare PC Cleaner.
