What is Muzik Fury?

Muzik Fury is a browser extension that actually lets you listen to online trending music and popular radios with the click of a button; however, at the same time, it also presents you with a potentially unreliable search engine.

Where does Muzik Fury come from?

We do not think that too many users would end up on the official page of this PUP at unless they actually know this URL or the name of this extension. It is also possible to install it via the Chrome web store, which definitely seems like a more often used source since 150 thousand users have already install this PUP through the store (, which is quite a high number. However, even the fact that you can find this tool in the web store does not make it a totally reliable and useful product. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of potentially harmful extensions in this store that are awaiting review. Once a tool is found potentially unreliable it may get blocked by Chrome as have happened to a lot of them already.

As a matter of fact, there is a way for you to not install potentially harmful applications. You can always perform a quick double-check via web search on the targeted tool or software. Most of the time you will find your answer on the first results page regarding the reliability of the application you are about to download. This very simple step can actually prevent certain PUPs and even malware infections from entering your computer. We do not claim that this will stop all the threats from crawling onto your operating system, but you can definitely help protect your PC this way.

The sad truth is that this application may mostly spread on the web in free software bundles containing malware infections. You can download such packages of “bad news” if you visit suspicious P2P websites. Therefore, it is important that you stay away from questionable freeware and torrent sites if you do not want to end up with such a malicious bundle. But it is also possible that you click on an unreliable third-party advertisement, such as a pop-up, that is generated by an adware program that is on your computer. As you can see, it is quite possible that your PC has been infiltrated by a couple of malware infections apart from this PUP. That is why we advise you to run a full-system check to identify all possible threats, but, before that, you should delete Muzik Fury.

How does Muzik Fury work?

Our malware researchers say that this PUP is mainly spreading in India (17.5%), Egypt (9.3%), Pakistan (9.1%), Algeria (7.5%), and Brazil (5.4%), but they emphasize that this will not stop this extension to emerge anywhere else, of course. This PUP changes your browser settings and sets a modified search engine page as your home page and new tab page as we have already mentioned. You will see a fake toolbar at the top of this search page with quick links to trending SoundCloud music as well as other online music stations, including Pandora, Spotify, and iHeartRadio. Apart from these quick links you can also find easy-access thumbnails right below the search box leading to popular sites, such as Gmail, Yahoo, and Facebook. We have found that the most problematic part of this PUP is the search engine itself because it is possible that you will be exposed to unreliable web content if you use it for searching the web. Since this search tool looks very much like Google, it is possible that you do not even realize that you are using this instead of Google. If you do not want to click on potentially unreliable third-party ads and sponsored links and thus land on malicious websites, we recommend that you remove Muzik Fury from your computer.
