According to our security research team, rotates advertisements and contains data on adware applications. However, if you were to try and access the server directly, would open just a blank page on your browser. It means that Pop up works only when you have adware application installed on your PC.

The Pop up samples we have displayed connection between the pop-up and such adware applications as SelectNGo and ReMarkable. However, it does not mean that these are the only adware programs that make use of this adware server. There might be other applications making use of Pop up too.

The most important thing users have to understand about Pop up is that you CANNOT click it. This pop-up might be believable because it often tries to convince users they need to update their Adobe Flash player, media player, or that they need a new video codec to watch a specific video online. In some cases, Pop up might help you to download a real codec, but it is the additional files that come along with it you have to be worried about.

It is more than obvious that Pop up distributes adware. Therefore, by clicking the pop-up you automatically download a setup file that is bundled with additional adware applications. Running the file installs unwanted apps on your PC automatically. Consequently, it exposes you to a variety of security threats, and it is clear that if you terminate Pop up and the program responsible for it, you will be able to protect your system.
