What is Edematousliterature Extension?

Edematousliterature Extension might sound like an innocent browser plug-in that should improve your Chrome browser’s functionality. Nevertheless, computer security experts maintain that this app is a potentially unwanted program, and as such it should not be welcomed on your computer.  Perhaps you were not aware of the fact that this extension was added to your browser in the first place. Whatever it might be, you should do everything you can to protect your system from harm. And removing Edematousliterature Extension would definitely be included in your to-do list.

Where does Edematousliterature Extension come from?

According to the information collected by our research team, Edematousliterature Extension is the same as the Edentulatecontrol extension that has been caught by our radar, too. These programs are promoted as regular and reliable plug-ins for the Chrome browser. You can even find them on the Chrome Web Store.

The point is that even if an extension can be found on the Chrome Web Store that does not mean that it is very useful or completely harmless. Sometimes it takes a while for Google to remove unreliable applications from the Chrome Store, so users may encounter and install potentially unwanted apps before they get removed.

We do not believe that you would willingly install something that could be harmful to your system, but perhaps you did not realize that Edematousliterature Extension could cause trouble? From what we have found, this application usually gets distributed not through the official website (we could not access edematousliterature.com at all). It usually gets distributed through pop-ups that are embedded in other third-party websites. For instance, the pop-up that suggests Edematousliterature Extension could take you by surprise. And it usually says something like “Add extension or Leave,” making it sound as if the only way to close the page is to add the extension to your browser. If users are confused and they want to get rid of the pop-up immediately, they might add the plug-in to their browser without any second thought. However, we would like to remind you that you can always close your browser using other methods, thus avoiding adding unfamiliar extensions.

What does Edematousliterature Extension do?

It is not clear what Edematousliterature Extension is supposed to do. Judging from its name, it probably should provide some additional information on literature. Perhaps that sounds like a good idea, but that is only if the program you are dealing with is reliable. Unfortunately, we cannot say this about Edematousliterature Extension.

Our main problem with the plug-in is that it can collect your personal information. Of course, it is not sophisticated enough to log your keystrokes and thus collect such sensitive data as banking logins and passwords, but the extension can easily employ tracking cookies to collect information on your web browsing habits.

Potentially unwanted programs often arrive at target systems for marketing purposes. Therefore, no matter what the “original” function of Edematousliterature Extension might be, the program will still try to promote something for you.

And this is where the real danger lies. This extension (as well as many other freeware applications) cannot be responsible for the third-party content security. That is to say, it does not review the commercial content it promotes. This creates a security loophole that allows malevolent third parties to embed their corrupted links into the program’s advertising space. Consequently, you get exposed to malicious content that could potentially lead to a malware infection. And that is definitely something you need to prevent from happening.

How do I remove Edematousliterature Extension?

The best way to protect your computer from harm is to remove any unwanted and risky applications immediately. Luckily, it is quite easy to delete the extension from your browser, but we are more concerned about other potential threats that might be hiding on plain sight.

If you think that you might have more unwanted programs installed, you should scan your PC with a licensed antispyware tool that will quickly locate all the dangerous apps (if any). Also, removing unwanted programs automatically is a faster and more efficient option. You can always miss some programs if you delete them manually, but a security program will definitely destroy them all.
