    What is VMC Media Player:

    Threat Classification: PUP/adware

    VMC Media Player (a.k.a. VMC Media Player Support SCAM) is an adware and/or a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Products), that claims to be a multimedia player, however our malware research team performed multiple tests & experiments and concluded, that the VMC Media Player is a dangerous adware and/or a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), mainly because of the intrusive ad marketing and because of the suspicious behaviour, when installed (it collects lots of private browsing data from the victim’s computer). The VMC Media Player adware is known to infiltrate users systems without their permission or any other consent, causing random browser redirects, browser settings modification and/or other potentially harmful events on your computer. Although, that the VMC Media Player adware may look and feel like a regular and legit software app, the majority of the reputable malware researchers around the world classified it as a dangerous adware and/or a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), capable of causing lots of damage and even data loss on the user PC. Our security specialists strongly advise you to remove VMC Media Player as soon as possible to prevent further data theft and/or PC damages. Furthermore, our security analysts strongly recommend to run a full system malware scan – using an up-to-date, reputable and reliable anti-malware program, like the award-winning SpyHunter 4. The VMC Media Player Adware is dangerous mainly, because of the intrusive web ads, which could easily be exploited by hackers and inject even more dangerous infections on your system such as ransomware. After a closer review, our security researchers warned us, that the VMC Media Player Ads have being generated by a malicious browser extension, which primary goal is to generate as many web hits as possible, to earn more money for its developers! Finally, our security analysts concluded that the VMC Media Player Adware is just another ad-supported program, that may and will use all kinds of deceptive and malicious tactics, just to make you install it. Once installed, the VMC Media Player adware will start displaying lots and lots of irritating, unwanted ads, which are the main revenue generator for its developers. The distribution of these kinds of malware infections has being done mainly via suspicious or questionable software bundles, hosted by suspicious and even dangerous websites. These software bundles are usually configured to perform silent or stealth installations, to keep these extra installs away from the eyes of the victims. Once successfully installed, the VMC Media Player Adware will change your browser and/or system settings, making the recovery much harder. Moreover, VMC Media Player will start monitoring and collecting all kind of private data, including browsing history, web searches and their locations, account credentials, tracking cookies as well as other sensitive private information, which later will either be sold or shared with some 3rd party company, which at the end will use it for their own marketing purposes. If you have VMC Media Player installed on your PC, your desktop and/or browser window will most likely be filled with intrusive and very annoying web ads, banners, pop-up windows or other 3rd party advertisements. If you start getting various web ads, claiming that they are – By VMC Media Player, Ads by VMC Media Player, VMC Media Player Ads, Powered By VMC Media Player, Brought by VMC Media Player or Brought to you by VMC Media Player – you should consider your computer infected by a dangerous malware and we strongly advise you to remove the VMC Media Player adware as soon as possible.
