Beware of Fake and Malicious Media Player Update Advertisements

If you are browsing the internet and come across any advertisements asking you to update or upgrade your media player, please do not click on them. These are fake advertisements that will attempt to trick you into downloading malicious and Potentially Unwanted Programs.

Please continue reading below.

Potentially Unwanted Programs or PUPs are similar to viruses, spyware, and other malware, but unlike these malicious programs, these Potentially Unwanted Programs are given permission to be installed by a user.

After installing and determining the true purpose of these programs, the user will then try to remove them after his/her computer starts to slow down and display annoying pop-up advertisements.
