OrionRound Description

Type: Adware MacOS

OrionRound is another intrusive PUP, targeting Mac users. Furthermore, analysis has confirmed that the application is part of the prolific AdLoad adware family. As such, it is likely that con artists are using various questionable methods to spread their creations. PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) such as this one are rarely installed by users willingly. Instead, the applications are typically placed inside dubious software bundles or injected into outright fake installers/updates. 

No matter how OrionRound found itself inside the user's Mac, the application is likely to start monetizing its presence there via an intrusive ad campaign. Adware applications are notorious for generating numerous questionable advertisements that could disrupt the user's experience on the device. More importantly, the shown advertisements may be promoting dubious destinations, services, or applications. Indeed, affected users may encounter advertisements for phishing websites, fake giveaways, more PUPs masquerading as legitimate applications, etc. 

In addition, PUPs could possess other invasive functionalities as well. After all, these applications are notorious for having data-tracking capabilities. While installed on the device, they may be silently monitoring users' browsing activities, collecting device details, or even trying to extract sensitive and confidential information from browsers' autofill data. This browser feature is usually used as a way to conveniently save account credentials, banking details, payment information and more. If such data is compromised, the consequences for the affected users could be dire.
