Roblox Game – WebNavigator browser – is it a trojan?
Recently, I have been seeing this WebNavigator browser on many kids’ laptops in the school district. Of course, they tell me they “don’t know how it got there” or it “just popped up.” I noticed that on all the laptops that have it, WebNavigator is the default browser, it redirects to Yahoo for searching, and it only appears on laptops that have other unauthorized software installed on it. The ones I see most often are Roblox and some chat software.
I’m not totally sure how they managed to bypass UAC, our Lightspeed filter, or group policy, but that’s beside the point for now. What I need to know is whether the WebNavigator browser is some kind of malware, whether a trojan, spyware, adware, or a combination thereof. The kids have no idea what they’re fooling around with, and I’m finding this stuff on little kids’ laptops (elementary age).
