The latest adware and malware on the market is what looks like a Chinese product called “Fireball” and has infected about 250 million browsers or 20 percent of the corporate networks around the world. Several computer security companies have classified the infection as malware, but according to a Chinese digital marketing firm it is a research tool.
The danger is that it is exposing a great deal of your privacy information along with installing other unwanted plugins to your browsers. It is all in an effort to boost advertising payments for the companies involved in releasing it. For you, it is a dangerous software and allows others to gather information about you without you knowing.
From an overall security aspect, it is really dangerous and you or your IT department should find a way to protect you from it. One very strong and prominent, but easy tool is from a company called Malwarebytes. They have been around a long time and cleared millions of infected computers of malware.
