What is OnlineMapFinder toolbar

OnlineMapFinder Toolbar is a malicious toolbar that gets installed in your computer without your attention. Although it looks like a legal toolbar that could provide certain service, it is a real threat that attacks your computer and steal personal data from your computer. Most hackers want to use such kind of toolbar to gain people’s attention and thus, making money out of it. Once your computer is infected by OnlineMapFinder Toolbar, you will see it everywhere when you open your browser. Besides, it may pop up now and then. It seems to be a website that offers you a place to search something, but if you really do, your search queries will be collected by its servers and next time it will pop up ads that are related to your search queries.

OnlineMapFinder Toolbar can monitor your keyboard activities and when it detects some keywords like “accounts”,”PIN” or “password”, it can automatically record that part and send them to hackers who can analyze your input and try to get your accounts information. Once your personal accounts are decrypted, then there will a high risk of being infected by this threat.
