What is

Do not trust messages introduced to you via because they are misleading and fictitious. These messages might offer legitimate-looking installers – such as the Adobe Flash Player update – but, in reality, they hide the installers of various unreliable pieces of software. Hopefully, you have not been tricked by the scam yet, and you still have time to protect yourself. However, if you have downloaded software represented via it, you need to act quickly. According to our team, legitimate and desirable programs could be used to conceal adware, potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), and even malware. Therefore, before you even continue reading this report, we suggest examining your operating system. You can install a trustworthy free malware scanner for that purpose. Hopefully, no threats are found, and you can soon forget about the scam after adjusting your own behavior online. However, if you discover that you need to delete threats, get to it ASAP.testtesttest

How do scams work?

Our research team has found several different variants of the scam. In some cases, the pages representing the scam can go full-screen, making it harder to close the browsers and avoid the demanding notifications. Of course, there is a way out of such a situation. You can always try hitting the F11 key on the keyboard to exit full screen, or you can use the Alt+F4 key combination to close the browser completely. The different scam pages can also introduce you to different installers and different variations of the same message. Whether you are introduced to “Adobe Flash Player is out-of-date,” “Latest version of Flash Player is required,” “Install latest version of Adobe Flash Player,” or a different notification, you need to ignore it. It is best not to click on any of the pop-ups and notifications at all because any action could initiate the download of a malicious .exe file. Note that the scam could be modified, and you could be introduced to something completely different every time. The installer of HD Video Player was another offer we faced. Ultimately, if you see “” in the URL, you should close the browser immediately.

If your web browser is up to date, scam pages should be blocked, and if you have reliable anti-malware software installed, malware installers should be automatically removed. If the target of the scam is tricked, and if there are no safeguards to protect them, the installation of malware might begin shortly. Amongst many different programs we have managed to link to the scam, we have AdsHunter, AnonymWin, Browsio, Exee, HDVideoPlayer, InLog Browser, MusiCalm, NotToTrack Proxy, Opera Browser, PremierOpinion, RelevantKnowledge, and SafeFinder. The Opera Browser, for example, is not classified as a threat, but schemers could use it to conceal adware, PUPs, and malware. On top of that, just by visiting alone, you could become a target of private data spies as cookies could be installed, browsing history could be tracked, and cache could be analyzed. This is why besides removing any and all programs associated with the scam, we also suggest clearing browsing data.

How to delete

It is likely that you were introduced to the scam via an illegal movie steaming website, a download website, an adult content website, or another unreliable source. To keep yourself safe in the future, we suggest that you do not visit such sources again. You also want to be cautious about the links and ads you interact with because they could be used to redirect you to scam pages as well. If you have faced the scam, the very least you should do is clear browsing data, but you also need to scan your system. Even if you did not download fake flash updates, video players, or whatever else might have be introduced to you, malware and PUPs could already be active. A legitimate malware scanner can also help you identify threats that could have been installed via the scam page. Hopefully, you can remove programs yourself, but it is best if you install an automated anti-malware tool because it will ensure that your operating system is cleaned and remains malware-free in the future.
