Do you know what Laflurla is?
Laflurla is a browser extension, and according to the information found on laflurla.com, you could download it onto Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers. The application appears to be closely related to the services of Topic Torch and contenko.com. We do not recommend trusting either of these if the plugin was installed onto your PC illegally. Needless to say, in this case you should delete Laflurla without further delay because illegally installed software could be extremely dangerous. In certain cases, seemingly legitimate programs could even be used to hide malware downloading Trojans and rootkits. Luckily, these are not the risks you would be likely to face when dealing with the suspicious extension.
As mentioned before, Laflurla has an official download page. The unfortunate part is that the presented download link is not active. Our malware researchers continuously analyze suspicious browser plugins promising to present you with money-saving coupons, pop-up deals, enhanced search results and similar services. Due to this it was not difficult to link Laflurla with such previously reported adware as Mega Browse, Rinkela or EnhanceTronic. None of these applications can be downloaded onto the computer via the official download pages, and all of them can be distributed with other software. If during the installation of this software you are introduced to the plugin and you are given a chance to decline its installation, you certainly should research it. The activated extension will track your virtual activity, and flood the browsers will various ads, some of which could route you to contenko.com. This is considered to be intrusive.
