DomPlayer - Rogue Multimedia Player
DomPlayer is a new rogue multimedia player on the loose. The gang behind DomPlayer is making use of fake video files (available as torrents) to spread this malware. Such fake video files instruct users to download and install DomPlayer (from
http://download.domplayer.com/) to play the file. Here's a screenshot of DomPlayer's webpage:
Obviously this player is a fake and demands user to purchase it during installation. It doesn't install if you don't transfer money to their accounts!
It is detected by few AVs as Adware.Lop.BJ, Busky.K and
Virus.Trojan.Win32.Obfuscated.en, as shown in this VirusTotal scan result:
This player seems to be a descendant of 3wPlayer, which also used fake video files as a means to get installed in a PC. In addition to this, DomPlayer is published/promoted by Cash4Downloads. Cash4Downloads is also affiliated with Adware programs like WinZix, 3wPlayer and NetPumper.
Avoid DomPlayer at any cost ;)
