Vastvista

Summary

Vastvista belongs to the infamous AdLoad family of adware, which has been targeting Mac users all the time, unmercifully. When inside a computer or Mac device, the Vastviosta will release numerous files, as a way to gain persistence on the affected machine, and steer clear of Macs built-in defenses. Vastvista comprises two elements: the main application, which will be installed on a system level and the browser extension that will add itself to Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Chrome, etc., which will end up changing the browser setting radically. The affected user can expect to have a new homepage, search provider and tab address. The goal of Vastvist is to exhibit sponsored advertisements that, when clicked, can redirect the affected user to unsafe places.
