Mega Colors is a browser extension that promises users a convenient way to change the background colors of visited websites. What users may not realize when installing the applications are often classified as PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), as well due to the questionable methods involved in their distribution.
When deployed to the user's device, Mega Colors could begin showing various intrusive advertisements. Users could be interrupted by pop-ups, banners, notifications, etc. Although the disruptions caused by the unexpectedly appearing advertisements are bad enough, it is important to note that such advertisements rarely promote legitimate destinations or software products. Users risk being shown advertisements for con websites, fake giveaways, shady adult platforms, more PUPs, etc. Interacting with the advertisements also may trigger redirects to suspicious websites.
At the same time, many PUPs also will try to monitor the browsing activities carried out on the device. They may collect the search history, browsing history, clicked URLs, IP addresses, geolocations, etc. The harvested information is typically exfiltrated to a remote server controlled by the PUP's operators.
