Oscar Delta Toolbar Screenshot 1The Oscar Delta Toolbar or, to use its full name, the Oscar Delta DX Group Toolbar, is a radio hobbyist add-on that malware researchers have categorized as a Potentially Unwanted Program.

The Oscar Delta Toolbar: Definitely not an Alpha at Add-on Originality

A common example of an add-on with minor advantages and not-so-minor disadvantages, the Oscar Delta Toolbar is one of the latest analyzed members of the Conduit family of toolbars. This family has an extended history of trying to promote its affiliated website through unwanted and unneeded changes to the browsers of their users. Most of these browser changes are implemented either as homepage hijacks or search engine hijacks, the latter of which Oscar Delta Toolbar has designed to participate in – as the Oscar Delta Toolbar mentions in its overly lengthy Privacy Policy. Other tidbits hidden in the Oscar Delta Toolbar’s user agreement include granting the Oscar Delta Toolbar permission to hijack your Web searches, monitor your online searches and deliver a variety of third party offers (or advertisements, as they’re known).

While the Oscar Delta Toolbar’s behavior certainly isn’t beneficial for its user, neither is the Oscar Delta Toolbar particularly unique.
