Aubamy Downloader is a questionable Google Chrome extension that may show up in your browser without your knowledge. In fact, this tool has no use for you at all but it can expose you to potentially harmful third-party web content through modified web search results as it hijacks your default search engine and redirects your searches. If you are exposed to questionable content, there is a chance that you click on corrupt ads and links, which can cause more serious malware infections on your system. It is also possible that this potentially unwanted program (PUP) displays potentially unreliable third-party ads on the websites you visit. All in all, we recommend that you remove Aubamy Downloader if you do not want to download more threats or end up being scammed on malicious websites.
The most likely way for you to infect your browser with this PUP is to get redirected to either aubamy.download/b.php?v=1130436807 or http://aubamy.download/b.php?clickid=1497965502114952771917922192221063&n=w1. For your information, at the time of writing, these URLs do not seem to work anymore. In any case, if you are infected with this useless extension, there is a good chance that either your computer is infected with malware that is capable of redirections (e.g., adware, browser hijackers, or PUPs) or you clicked on a corrupt third-party ad or link on suspicious websites. If you want to make sure that you computer is safe for you to use, you should run a reliable malware scanner to identify every single threat source after you decide to delete Aubamy Downloader from your browser. You should keep your system clean so that you can keep the vulnerability of your system at a low level.
You can infect your machine with adware and other threats via bundles promoted by shady file-sharing pages, such as torrent and freeware sites, for example. If you are the type of user who likes to use and download free software, you may end up on unfamiliar pages after a web search. This is very risky because even if you use the official download button, you may download a package filled with PUPs and malware infections (e.g., adware programs, browser hijackers, fake alerts, etc). But this is not the only source, of course, for such malicious bundles. You may also click on unreliable third-party ads that these and other websites (e.g., online gambling, dating, and porn) tend to host. These ads may also be disguised and appear as fake download and navigational buttons but you can also find banner notifications pretending to be system notifications about a possible malware attack or missing plugin, etc. One click on these contents and you can let such a malicious lot onto your system. We hope that it is clear by now that you should make sure that your computer is clean of such threats if you want to go surfing on a secure PC. We suggest that you delete Aubamy Downloader as the first step towards a cleaner system; however, this may be just the beginning.
This PUP operates the same way as Takeitnow.club. When you are redirected to its infecting site, you will see a pop-up window that tries to force you to install this PUP if you want to leave the questionable site. This is a rather questionable way to install any software and should make you cancel the process right away or if you have already fallen for it, we recommend that you remove Aubamy Downloader immediately. This extension does nothing beneficial and it does not seem to have any function at all, apart from hijacking your web searches that you run through the address bar. In other words, this PUP redirects your default search engine queries through a couple of questionable sites, such as clever-find.com/atalyagr/?keyword= and finally lands you on a Yahoo search results page. This is rather suspicious behavior and only good for one thing: To inject potentially unreliable third-party advertisements and sponsored links into the authentic Yahoo-generated search results pages in order to make money by advertising affiliates. If you click on such ads and links, you could cause further security-related issues. You may drop malware infections or even be redirected to malicious pages where cyber criminals cannot wait their next victim to scam. This might result in your losing your money from your bank account or even becoming a victim of identity theft. We do not claim that these can surely happen every time you click on unreliable content, but certainly a possibility, which you should avoid at all costs. Therefore, we advise you to remove Aubamy Downloader as soon as possible.
If you are ready to get rid of this annoying browser extension, you can do so easily by removing this undesirable extension through the menu of your Google Chrome browser. Please follow our guide below if you need help with this. You can certainly improve the security of your system if you keep all your programs and drivers updated. However, nothing can really beat a decent anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter. You can choose any security tool though that you find trustworthy. We suggest that you do a proper research before making up your mind about it because the net is filled with rogue security software.
