What is Webplayer?

Webplayer is an adware program that integrates into the user's web browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox) and will perform a number of functions mostly designed to generate advertising supported or affiliate revenue. In order to do so the program will display a number of different ad formats by injecting the ads directly in the user's browser based on either the activity of the user's past and present behavior or based on the context of the web page. Ads are displayed as banners, text-links, search related adverts or in many cases malvertising in order to get a user to download and install additional software, mostly bundled adware. Additionally this program may modify/hijack the web browser's homepage and search provider as well as change a number of the security settings of the browser. These changes will allow it to perform additional ad-supported functions in the browser. Typically it comes bundled with free applications from the Internet through a bundles offer for free software including video utilities or for updates.
