Ads by Middle Rush
Written by Tomas Meskauskas on (updated)
What is Middle Rush?
Middle Rush is a deceptive application designed by SuperWeb LLC. According to the developers, Middle Rush significantly improves the Internet browsing experience by delivering coupons, notifying users of the best deals/discounts available on various online stores, and enabling features such as comparison shopping - "We're passionate about improving web by providing the best tools to enhance the browsing experience, from searching the web to comparing online deals to find the best prices. We've combined all of our great ideas into the Middle Rush product suite, a FREE set of tools that work to make your browsing experience... better!"
These false claims often trick users into believing that Middle Rush is a legitimate program. Be aware, however, that this app is distributed as a 'bundle' with other software and, thus, it installs without users' consent. Furthermore, Middle Rush gathers Internet browsing-related data and delivers intrusive online ads.
Middle Rush records IP addresses, unique identifier numbers, website URLs visited, pages viewed, and other similar information that may contain personally identifiable details. SuperWeb LLC shares this information with third party companies who often misuse it in various ways to generate revenue.
This behavior can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. The types of advertisements generated by Middle Rush include banner, pop-up, interstitial, transitional, full-page, coupon, and search ads. Most redirect to various e-commerce web pages, however, some can redirect to malicious sites.
There is a high probability that clicking them will cause high-risk adware or malware infections. Furthermore, these ads are displayed using a ‘virtual layer’, which enables placement of third party graphical content on any websites visited. By concealing underlying content, these ads significantly diminish the Internet browsing experience.
For the above reasons, you are strongly advised to uninstall Middle Rush adware immediately.
The developers of Middle Rush have released several hundred identical potentially unwanted programs. Examples include Discovery App, Enter Voyage, Oasis Space, and Astro Find.
All offer identical features, however, Middle Rush and other software developed by SuperWeb LLC, provides none of the functionality promised. This company aims to generate as much revenue as possible - its products merely generate intrusive online advertisements and collect personally identifiable information. Users receive no real value.
How did Middle Rush install on my computer?
SuperWeb LLC distributes Middle Rush using a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' - stealth installation of potentially unwanted programs with regular software/apps.
Research shows that installation of PUPs is mostly hidden. Aware that many users rush the download and installation processes, developers conceal bogus applications within the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' settings. Users who skip this section, often install rogue applications such as Middle Rush inadvertently.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To prevent installation of adware-type programs, be attentive during the download and installation processes. Closely analyze all steps using the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' settings. Bundled software is mostly bogus, and for this reason, you should decline it.
