Adware.LoadBlanks is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a shortcut hijacker for Windows systems.
Adware.LoadBlanks alters the shortcuts to browsers on the user’s desktop, in the taskbar, and in the Start menu. The shortcuts are redirected to .BAT files in the folder %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Browsers. These .BAT files then load loadblanks[dot]ru on the browser. The installer for the hijacker is offered on media download sites under false pretenses.
Malwarebytes protects systems infected with Adware.LoadBlanks by blocking the ad-rotators they hijack to.
Malwarebytes can detect and remove Adware.LoadBlanks without further user interaction.
