Muzik Fury could be a good choice of a browser extension to listen to online music through your browsers; however, we have found some disturbing traits that made us label this tool as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. This extension can perform changes to your browsers, namely, it can alter your home page and new tab page settings. While this PUP may not be a direct threat to your computer’s security, unfortunately, the modified search engine page it sets in your browsers may expose you to manipulated search results. So even if this extension delivers as promised, i.e., you can actually listen to online music following the trends, it may introduce you to a potentially unreliable search engine. That is why we believe that you should remove Muzik Fury from your browsers before you end up on unsafe websites and infect your computer with malware threats. Speaking of which, it is quite likely that malware infections have already crawled onto your computer along with this PUP.
If you want to be kept up-to-date on the latest music trends, it is possible that you go on a hunt for a great tool that enables you to listen to free online music and radios. This is how you may find the official webpage of this extension at muzikfury.thewhizmarketing.com. This is a very simple page with limited information about this browser extension. You can directly install it by clicking on a button. Another official way to install this tool is through the Chrome web store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/muzik-fury/bbhiadjigkejaeedpjjbgcjniggcbfee) where you can see that almost 150 thousand users have already installed it; yet, no review or comment can be seen, which is a bit strange.
Before rushing to install this tool, though, let us give you a tip to save you from some future headaches. We recommend that you always run a web search on the extension or application you are about to install. In this case, you can use either its name (Muzik Fury) or its unique Chrome ID (bbhiadjigkejaeedpjjbgcjniggcbfee) as a query in Google and see what happens. It could take as little as a few seconds from your precious time and you could realize from the results that this browser extension is a PUP and you should remove it from your computer due to the potential risks it holds.
But we are quite certain that this is not how most of the computer users installed this PUP. As a matter of fact, it is more likely that you have let it onto your computer via a freeware bundle. This is possible if you have visited questionable file-sharing websites recently. It is enough to search for a free program on the web and click on a corrupt link among the results that may take you to a fake shareware site, for instance. Finding yourself on an unfamiliar website can be the point of infection when you click on unsafe content, such as a button-looking third-party ad. A lot of computer users infect their computers with malicious bundles this way. Unfortunately, such bundles can hold several malware threats and you may infect your system with them in one go if you are not careful enough during the installation process. If any of this is familiar to you, do not hesitate to run a full-system malware scan after deleting Muzik Fury.
This PUP is mostly popular in the following countries: India (17.5%), Egypt (9.3%), and Pakistan (9.1%). However, this does not mean that you cannot get infected by it anywhere in the world. We have also noticed that this questionable application is similar to MovieJunkies and JokeVault. This browser extension enables you to listen to trending music from SoundCloud as well as popular online radios and music sites, including Spotify and Tunein. You can access these through a pseudo toolbar with the click of a button. However, this page is indeed a customized search engine page (mysearch.com) that is set as your home page and new tab page by this application in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox as well. This PUP does not seem to affect Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, we have found that this search engine is unreliable because it may display you modified search results. This can happen for only one reason and that is to promote certain affiliated third-party sites. Thus, it is possible that your search results page will contain ads and links that lead to potentially harmful websites. If you click on such content, you can end up on a malicious website and infect your computer with more malware programs or you may get scammed by cyber criminals. That is why we think that you should remove Muzik Fury if you do not want more security issues on your PC.
If you have finally made up your mind about this PUP, it is time for us to show you a way to eliminate it. Fortunately, it is not a difficult task; all you have to do is take care of the extensions in the affected browsers. If you have never dealt with extensions before, please follow our instructions below. But, if you want a more effective way to clean your whole system, maybe it is time for you to consider using a professional anti-malware application. Also, please remember that keeping all your drivers and programs updated can help you lower your computer’s vulnerability.
