Just wanted to put up a short post before going back to coding on FreeFixer. Found another PUA called MagnoPlayer right now. This appears to be a variant of NewPlayer that I’ve previously blogged about.
If MagnoPlayer is installed and running on your machine, you’ll notice MagnoPlayer.exe, WBrowser.exe and mgChecker.exe running in the Windows Task Manager. You will also see a new service installed called magnoplayerupdaterservice.exe.
Currently, some of these files are detected by the anti-virus programs, some are not. I’ll show how to remove MagnoPlayer in this blog post with the FreeFixer removal tool.
The installer file for MagnoPlayer, is digitally signed by Digital Plugin SL.
As usual when I mess around with some new software I uploaded it to VirusTotal to see if the anti-malware scanners there find anything interesting. The detection rate is pretty low. 4 of the 57 scanners detected the file. Baidu-International classifies MangoPlayer as PUA.MSIL.NewPlayer.bA, DrWeb names it Adware.Siggen.31174 and ESET-NOD32 reports a variant of MSIL/NewPlayer.A.
The MagnoPlayer removal with FreeFixer is straightforward. Check all the MangoPlayer files for removal and click fix. Here’s a few screenshots from the removal that should help you:
Hope this helped you solved the MagnoPlayer problem.
Any idea how you got MagnoPlayer on your computer? Please share in the comments below. Thank you!
