Rush Music Search
Rush Music Search might seem like a useful browser add-on for music lovers, but our specialists warn us it is considered to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP). The classification does not mean it could be harmful, but it suggests the extension could be unreliable or may have undesirable qualities. To be more precise, our researchers who tested it say there is a chance the program might display various pop-ups, banners, or other advertising material from its third-party partners. The bad news is, it is unknown where the ads could originate from, which makes it possible some part of them might be possibly dangerous. We will discuss this further in the article, so if you came here to learn more about Rush Music Search, you should continue reading our text. Additionally, we will place instructions showing how to get rid of the PUP manually, in case you decide you no longer wish to keep it installed.
To start with, let us begin from where Rush Music Search might come from. It has an official site called livemediasearch.systems, but is quite usual for PUPs to be distributed through additional sources like pop-up ads or bundled setup files too. Consequently, we would not be surprised if the extension was bundled with other potentially unwanted programs, adware, and so on. Often users download bundled installers from unreliable file-sharing web pages or after clicking doubtful advertisements. Therefore, one of the most important things to do to avoid untrustworthy applications alike is to research all the tools you choose to install before doing so. Most essential facts users should look for is whether a reputable company developed the program and if it has any bad expert/user reviews. Such details could signal something might be wrong with the chosen software. Of course, downloading applications from legitimate and reliable websites only would be a smart move too.
It looks like after installation Rush Music Search may replace the user’s default search engine with a search tool of its own. As for the browser’s homepage or new tab page preferences, it looks like the PUP does not alter them. Nonetheless, the changed search engine should be enough so you would start seeing the application's website often. We do not say the site is malicious, but it seems it might show modified search results, which means the results could contain third-party advertising material. It may come from various web pages. Our researchers say there is a chance some of the ads could be untrustworthy, e.g., advertise other PUPs, lead to sites containing malware, ask to participate in fake surveys, and so on. Of course, these are just examples as we cannot know for sure. The rest of Rush Music Search results ought to be reliable, but we have no doubt you could find them while using other search engines as well. The difference is, if you pick a reputable search tool, it may not show results injected with ads from unknown or unreliable third parties.
