How to remove redirects to streamoverlyquickprogram[.]com from Mac computers

What is streamoverlyquickprogram[.]com?

streamoverlyquickprogram[.]com is a deceptive website running a fake Flash Player updater. It claims that Flash is outdated and advises users to update it. Note that bogus software updaters are commonly used to infiltrate untrusted software (e.g. Potentially Unwanted Applications - PUAs) and even malicious content (e.g. ransomware, trojans and other malware). Typically, visitors enter deceptive/scam web pages via redirects caused by intrusive advertisements or PUAs already installed on the system.

streamoverlyquickprogram[.]com scam

There are several variants of this scam run on streamoverlyquickprogram[.]com. One variant displays multiple pop-up windows in quick succession, which state that Flash Player might be outdated. The large pop-up in the middle of the page informs visitors that Flash is an essential browser plug-in, which enables various online media, e.g. video, animation and games. As the Flash Player on users' systems might be out of date, it has been blocked. To continue using it, the plug-in must be updated. The pop-up at the bottom-right of the page, and one that overlays the web page itself, repeat this message, yet phrase it differently. The other variant of this scam employs a more subtle approach in promoting the fake updater. This version shows only one pop-up window, which does not directly state that visitors' Flash Player is outdated. Instead, it simply elaborates on the uses of the plug-in. This pop-up differs from the center pop-up of the other variant: it adds more information concerning the functions of Flash Player. It states that the software supports data formats such as AMF, SWF, XML, JSON and multimedia such as .MP3, .FLV, .JPEG, .GIF, .PNG and .RTMP, with other features including accelerated graphics rendering, multi-thread video decoding and webcam support. Each pop-up displayed by streamoverlyquickprogram[.]com has "Download/Install/Update" buttons, which initiate download of the bogus updates. Installing the fake updater will not update Flash Player - rather, users will inadvertently allow dubious/harmful content onto their device. In this way, they expose their systems to various infiltration and infections. You are strongly advised against trusting streamoverlyquickprogram[.]com or other, similar scams.

As well as force-opening deceptive sites, PUAs also redirect to untrustworthy, rogue, sale-based and malicious web pages. These applications have varied capabilities. Adware-type PUAs run intrusive advertisement campaigns - i.e., they deliver unwanted and dangerous ads. Another-type called browser hijackers modify browsers and limit or deny access to settings. Regardless of their type, most PUAs can track data. They record browsing activity (URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries typed, etc.) and gather users' personal information (IP addresses, geolocations and other details). This vulnerable data can then be shared with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) seeking to misuse it for financial gain. To summarize, PUAs can compromise device integrity and lead to serious privacy results, financial loss, even identity theft. Therefore, you are advised to remove all suspect applications and/or browser extensions/plug-ins immediately upon detection.

centersourceoffreeupgrades.besttherightwaytofindplayering.pro and mainplaceupgradesfree.info are examples of other deceptive websites that use an identical scam model to streamoverlyquickprogram[.]com. The purpose of such schemes is to encourage visitors into performing specific actions, thus generating revenue for the scammers behind them. Social engineering and scare tactics are used to further these scams. Therefore, sites that warn visitors that their devices are infected, or announce that they have won "unbelievable" prizes, received "amazing offers" and similar, cannot be trusted.

How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?

PUAs proliferate via download/installation set-ups of other software. The deceptive marketing technique of pre-packing normal products with unwanted or malicious content is called "bundling". Rushing download and installation processes (e.g. skipping steps and sections, using pre-set options, etc.) endangers systems with potential infiltration and infections. Some PUAs have "official" download web pages, which in turn are often promoted by deceptive websites. When intrusive advertisements are clicked, they can execute scripts to download/install PUAs without users' permission.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications

You are advised to research all content, before downloading/installing. Use only official and verified download channels. Peer-to-Peer sharing networks (BitTorrent, eMule, Gnutella, etc.), free file-hosting sites and other third party downloaders are untrusted and should be avoided. When downloading/installing, read the terms, study all possible options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings and opt-out of additional apps, tools, features and so on. Intrusive ads usually seem legitimate and innocuous, however, they can cause redirects to dubious pages (e.g. pornography, adult-dating, gambling and others). If you experience ads/redirects of this kind, inspect the device and remove all suspicious applications and/or browser extensions/plug-ins without delay. If your computer is already infected with PUAs, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for macOS to automatically eliminate them.
