MediaPlay+vid1.1 Ads is based on the CrossRider adware platform that has been digitally signed by Bright Circle Investments Ltd, an infamous adware company known for TornTV, BrowserServices, and other unreliable adware applications distributed as browser extensions. MediaPlay+vid1.1 Ads is notorious for injecting advertising banners on websites and replacing legitimate website adverts with its own. As if that wasn’t enough, it also displays web pages, which claim that essential Windows software is obsolete, thus needs to be updated. We warn users to remain vigilant and not to get caught in the web the cyber criminals have woven.
However, even though MediaPlay+vid1.1 Ads is often used by hackers and cyber bullies to spread infections, the main purpose of this adware is quite different. It has been crafted for the single purpose of generating income.

Though it does not pose a serious threat since personally identifiable information is not collected, users should be aware that adware is vulnerable and often exploited by cyber criminals who might use it to steal personal information.
Like all adware, MediaPlay+vid1.1 Ads can be taken advantage of by cyber criminals and hackers to distribute Trojans and various infections.
