    What is Movie Megs:

    Threat Classification: PUP/adware

    After conducting a thorough investigation and running several complex tests & experiments, our security experts concluded that the Movie Megs should be classified as a dangerous adware and a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program). Furthermore, our security research team warned us that the Movie Megs Ads are caused by a malicious browser extension and even though that the Movie Megs claims to provide many useful and handy FEED features directly on your Desktop, our security experts are absolutely confident that the Movie Megs is just another ad-supported software product, which will try & use all kinds of malicious tactics to make a bit more cash for its owners by showing/streaming sponsor ads and/or affiliate links/cookies. These types of malicious applications are usually distributed by various dangerous software bundles, that most of the time are causing lots of confusion among the normal regular users, because of their silent or stealth installation method, performed away from the eyes of the victims! The infected users do not even understand where the annoying Movie Megs came from!? Please keep in mind that these questionable software bundles could distribute much more dangerous stuff like cryptoviruses, ransomware, computer lockdown programs, modified installers, bad toolbars, rogue anti-virus products or even trojan horses capable of allowing backdoor access to your computer to this attacker. You should be very careful, because Movie Megs uses stealth or silent installation mode to get on your computer and to start showing you lots of intrusive ads, that were not requested nor required and this on almost all websites you visit. Of course this is not the only one problem – it appears that these applications are working for the Data Brokers as well – they are trying to gather as much information as possible from your browser, browser cookies and browser history as well as other sensitive private information, that is supposed to stay private. If you have Movie Megs installed on your computer, it is very likely that it fills your screen with unwanted & very annoying ads, banners pop-up windows or other 3rd party advertisements. Movie Megs has been classified as a PUP by the majority of the security experts on the Internet, mainly because of the distribution method it uses – “software bundling” and because of its suspicious behavior on the user’s computer. Movie Megs uses a malicious browser extension, that is capable of injecting ads into almost every webpage you visit, which could lead to modifying the web page design and content – especially regarding the search results by the major web search engines! Once installed, the Movie Megs quickly modifies windows registry database and browser’s settings, making the recovery even harder. If you start getting various web ads, claiming that they are – “By Movie Megs”, “Ads by Movie Megs”, “Movie Megs Ads”, “Powered by Movie Megs”, “Brought by Movie Megs” or “Brought to you by Movie Megs” – you should consider your computer infected. Movie Megs appears to work with all the well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. [Read More…]
