Our malware analysts identify MediaDownloader as a potentially unwanted program, because, instead of fulfilling its own promises, it silently downloads adware.

The most disconcerting thing that our malware researchers have found about MediaDownloader is its ability to download adware. Advertisement-supported programs can be dangerous if they present the ads created by unreliable parties. You could be redirected to sites controlled by cyber criminals, which means that even more malicious software could slither in.

On top of the security threats inflicted by the PUP, this program is also completely worthless.
