Adware.LyriXeeker is a browser plugin that is often categorized as adware, because it comes bundled with yieldmanager adware cookie and displays various commercial advertisements. There is also an official website for Adware.LyriXeeker that is available at lyrixeeker.co. There the application is promoted as a browser plugin that is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome web browsers. It is said that the plugin provides you with an instant access to song lyrics, but in general computer security experts suggest removing Adware.LyriXeeker from your computer, because it could be related to a number of possible security issues.

Based on the information displayed at the official website, Adware.LyriXeeker plugin can be used to display lyrics on YouTube videos that you watch online. Basically, it turns YouTube in a Karaoke site, and it may seem that this function could be rather useful and entertaining, but the alarming fact about Adware.LyriXeeker is that it is created on Crossrider platform. Although Crossrider has its own privacy policies, any application created on this platform is a subject to the support of a number of third parties. Each of those has its own privacy policy, and it means that commercial advertisements displayed via Adware.LyriXeeker are not related to the plugin’s privacy policy at all.

This creates a security loop that can be exploited by cyber criminals who may make use of Adware.LyriXeeker and embed their own corrupted links into the aforementioned pop-ups to distribute malware. What is more, as Adware.LyriXeeker is often bundled with Ad.yieldmanager and Ads Not by this Site Virus, it could be said that the plugin is part of a group of adware applications that can easily flood you with annoying and even dangerous commercial advertisements.

However, it is important to point out that Adware.LyriXeeker could hardly be considered a malware application, because more often than not users download and install LyriXeeker themselves (albeit unwittingly). Since this application does not enter your system surreptitiously, one cannot say it is a computer malware program.
