Our sensors have just detected yet another rogue advertisement served through the Yieldmanager ad network, this one enticing users into downloading a rogue video player known as the ‘Oops Video Player’. What’s particularly interesting about this rogue ad campaign is that the PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application) attempts to visually trick users by mimicking Adobe Flash Player’s installation process.
