MoviesWorld New Tab
It does not look like MoviesWorld New Tab is popular yet, but for users who encounter it, we would like to warn them to be cautious with it. Our specialists say it falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs because it seems the extension may track user’s browsing and show suspicious advertisements through modified Yahoo search results. Given you could browse the Internet with the original Yahoo search tool, keeping such a suspicious tool instead does not seem to be a good idea. If you think so as well we urge you not to wait till something goes wrong with MoviesWorld New Tab and remove it at once. Those of you who need a little help while deleting this potentially unwanted program manually could follow the instructions placed at the end of this text. However, if you wish to get all details about it first, we recommend reading the whole article first.
First of all, the research shows MoviesWorld New Tab could be spread with bundled setup files. Such variant seems possible because currently, the statistics available on Chrome Web Store page say there are only 29 users and a single vote that is not very great (3 stars out of five). At this point, we should also mention the extension does not work on any other browsers besides Google Chrome, which is why we do not talk about statistics on Mozilla Add-ons website or other sites alike. Going back to the possibility the potentially unwanted program might be spread with bundled setup files, it means some users could receive it without even realizing it. Such situations often occur for those who skip advanced installation settings and agree to all terms without reviewing them. Consequently, to stay away from potential threats that might be received through bundled setup files, we would recommend being more attentive during installation or better yet avoid sites where installers might be bundled with dangerous software.
According to our specialists after the installation, the extension may change Google Chrome’s homepage or new tab page with a search engine that gathers results with a modified search.yahoo.com version. Because of this, it is quite possible the potentially unwanted program could be able to inject gathered results with advertisements from the third party. The bad news is, we doubt MoviesWorld New Tab’s creators would review such ads or take any responsibility for them, which means some of them might be potentially dangerous. For instance, the additional advertisements from the third party may promote scam web pages, websites containing Trojans, viruses, or other malware, sites offering other potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers, adware, and so on. What’s more, such content might be targeted as well since it is quite possible the extension may track user’s browsing by gathering information like his search keywords, visited web pages, clicked ads, and so on. Nevertheless, no matter how tempting the ads could look like we would recommend staying away from them or better yet deleting the application that might display them.
All things considered, we do not think MoviesWorld New Tab is worthy of your trust, and if you do not wish to take any chances with this potentially unwanted program, we advise erasing it at once. All you have to do to get rid of it manually is to go to Google Chrome’s Extension’s manager and choose its removal. For users who need any help while completing this task, we offer using the instructions located a bit below this text. On the other hand, if you would prefer deleting the suspicious extension with a reliable antimalware tool you should not hesitate to do so. In which case, we simply recommend picking a too you could trust because if you keep it up to date, it may help you protect the system against future threats too.
