mpgun.com is the domain that offers service which is considered illegal because it involves converting content that belongs to authors. This is pirating services-resembling behavior, so the site also has relations with advertising services and third-party companies that rely on the push of their own products and software. Advertisements that fill up the screen when you try to use this service can contain malicious material and trigger issues with performance, PUP installations.
Even though the domain is not considered malicious mpgun.com is associated with advertisers and PUP developers, shady third-party companies that focus on commercial content delivery. If you visit the page, use the service and do not pay enough attention, you can get even pore shady apps installed or even suffer from privacy issues, identity theft when the collected data gets exposed to dangerous sources.
All this behavior is mainly caused by the redirect virus or adware-type cyber threat that managed to get on the system via freeware installations or from similar misleading and deceptive pages that trigger automatic browser-based virus downloads.
