Weather Reports New Tab
Weather Reports New Tab is yet another useless and potentially harmful browser extension from the notorious Polarity family that is not a good idea to have in your browsers. We have found that this potentially unwanted program (PUP) is very similar to a previous one in the family called My Weather Radar. In fact, this family also infamous for its dozens of browser hijackers like Search.hemailinboxlogin.com and Search.hgetsports.net. To be frank, we have not been able to find a working sample of this PUP anymore. You cannot even seem to be able to download it from the Chrome web store. This can only mean that either it has been blocked or simply removed. This, of course, does not mean that it cannot be spread in alternative ways. If you find this search website in your browsers, you can be sure that your PC has been infected with several malware threats, too. This is why we advise you to remove Weather Reports New Tab as soon as possible if you plan to keep your PC secure.
Since there is no official way now to download this browser extension, it is most likely spreading in questionable ways. In all fairness, we need to mention that most Polarity tools actually have promotional pages and Chrome web store pages as well. In this case it is not true anymore, which could be due to being blocked or its creators may have abandoned this project for some reason unknown to us. In any case, you may still find this PUP in your browsers and wonder how it may have gotten there. Let us tell you our version so that you understand why we say that you should delete Weather Reports New Tab.
Such PUPs can also be distributed in freeware bundles. This is a deceptive method for cyber crooks to spread questionable PUPs as well as malware infections. Such bundles are mostly promoted by suspicious torrent and freeware sites, which are also usually packed with questionable third-party contents, such as fake buttons and malicious scripts. For example, you may click on a download button but instead of downloading a file or a bundle, you would end up on a new tab loading a malicious website. This way you can easily infect your computer, not to mention when you actually download a bundle from such a site. An infectious bundle can carry several PUPs, adware programs, browser hijackers, fake alert, and Trojans as well. Installing it is not only a big mistake but a source of multiple system security threats, too. This is why you should stick to official and reputable pages to download updates and free software. Also, it is advisable not to visit any suspicious site with a lot of questionable third-party banner and pop-up ads. Right now, we suggest that after you delete Weather Reports New Tab, you run a reliable online malware scanner to find all possible threats.
This PUP, similarly to all other siblings in the family, is supposed to be a featured search page. It offers you weather-related quick links as well as a search engine. Although these links may take you to legitimate pages, it is possible that this tool injects its affiliates' ads into third-party contents and thus make them possibly unreliable, i.e., risky to click on. This extension also uses redirection to a Yahoo search results page, which could be modified and contain questionable third-party advertisements and links. If you engage with such content, you could let further infections onto your computer as well as end up being scammed by cyber villains. If you do not want to possibly even lose money from your bank account, we recommend that you remove Weather Reports New Tab from your computer as soon as possible.
You can eliminate this PUP if you remove this unreliable browser extension from your possibly affected browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome. We have included our instructions below if you would like to put an end to this threat manually. Remember that this will not make your system all secure since there could be way more serious malware infections hiding on your computer. This is why we suggest that you install a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter, to automatically protect your computer from all present and future threats as well.
