Infosec researchers have observed that one of the ploys carried out by the Trueprofit website pop-ups is the commonly encountered 'Latest version of Adobe Flash Player.' Users who land on one of these sites will be presented with a pop-up window claiming that their Adobe flash is out of date. Visitors will then be offered to fix the non-existent problem by downloading (fake) updates. As a whole, this scheme is most often used to spread PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) such as adware or browser hijackers.
