What is Dynamic Updater?
Dynamic Updater is a browser add-on distributed together with another rogue application claiming to be a legitimate music and video player. On first glance, this may seem useful software, however, be aware that Dynamic Updater is categorized as adware or a potentially unwanted program (PUP).
These associations are made due to a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' - stealth installation of third-party apps together with regular software.
After successful infiltration on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, Dynamic Updater generates various intrusive advertisements such as banners, pop-ups, etc., which often redirect users to bogus websites, and thus exposing computers to infection.
Furthermore, Dynamic Updater tracks various software and hardware information that may be personally identifiable. For example: IP addresses, websites visited, search queries, pages viewed, etc. Note that information tracking can result in serious privacy issues or identity theft.
None of this software provides any significant value for users. PUPs such as Dynamic Updater are developed to generate revenue by the display of ads and sharing collected information with third parties. Therefore, you are strongly advised to eliminate this adware from your system immediately.
Dynamic Updater is mostly distributed via small programs called 'download clients' on freeware download websites such as download.com, soft32.com, and many others. Download clients monetize these websites' free services by offering installation of third-party apps when users download free software.
Although PUPs such as Dynamic Updater are described as legitimate, most are categorized as adware. Pay close attention during download of free software and decline all offers to install additional programs.
Furthermore, downloaded software should be installed using the 'Advanced' or 'Custom' options - this will reveal any concealed apps listed for installation and allow you to opt-out. If you have installed Dynamic Updater, the following removal guide will help you to remove this PUP from your system.
