MidADdle is a browser helper object that displays advertisements based on the URL in web browser address field.

"Internet Marketing company AdSypre has announced the beta launch of its MidADdle keyword targeted ad system. The system, similar to Claria and WhenU, works once a user has downloaded and opted into the system. The system tracks online behavior matching user keywords in user-entered URLs, web page forms, search forms and click-through destinations which are then mapped against advertiser keywords generating targeted ad delivery. The ad appears as a between-page unit and is presented to the user upon identification by system as they progress from one page to the next. The user can choose to click on the ad, view it for ten seconds or skip it. If the ad is clicked, the user is delivered to the advertiser's site." Source

The vendor offers MidADdle demonstations [1] [2] at their web sites.

Here's the vendor's overview about how MidADdle operates: "Here's how it works: 1. An advertiser selects specific "keywords" to target by our patent pending technology and submits their creative advertisement to be approved by our customer support team.
2. Our unique bidding system allows an advertiser to outbid and gain priority over other advertisers interested in the same target.
3. When a user goes to a site containing a "keyword" in the destination URL, it will temporarily direct them to a page that displays the ad.
4. The visitor is then automatically redirected to their intended destination after 10 seconds or can 'close' the ad at any time and proceed to the destination page.
5. If the visitor clicks on the advertisement, a new window is spawned and their web surfing experience is protected. In the end, what you have is truly a targeted ad that does not annoy the user like a pop-up."

It appears that MidADdle sometimes use random file names for the browser helper object .dll file.
