Threat Database Mac Malware UniversalWebResults


The UniversalWebResults Mac application is a fake utility that claims to offer users a great service. However, this is not the reality, as this tool will not provide you with any tools or content of value.

If you tend to download and install freeware bundles, you may have obtained the UniversalWebResults application by accident. Often, freeware bundles contain PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) or adware programs like the UniversalWebResults utility. Fortunately, the UniversalWebResults utility will not harm your system or threaten the security of your data in any way. However, the UniversalWebResults tool is going to affect your browsing quality negatively almost certainly. This is due to the fact that the UniversalWebResults adware program will plant advertisements on every Web page that you visit. This will result in a spike in the number of advertisements displayed on the websites you launch. The advertisements may variate in shapes and forms:

  • Sizeable banners.
  • Flashing alerts.
  • Hyperlinks in articles.
  • Pop-up windows.

Since some of the advertisements associated with the UniversalWebResults tool may overlay parts of the page you browse, you may be unable to view all the content the site has to offer.

If you have adware programs on your Mac, like the UniversalWebResults utility, you should remove them to improve your browsing quality. You can do this with the help of a trustworthy anti-malware suite easily.
