EZbrowsing Search

What is EZbrowsing Search?

EZbrowsing Search can show up in your Google Chrome browser and you may not even remember installing this questionable tool. Our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that this is not a standalone tool actually but comes from a large and growing family that also contains Search By myMusic Extension and Fast Browsing. We are hear to warn you that all of these extensions are, in fact, potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), which means that they might present to you questionable third-party content that could pose a threat to your computer though indirectly. Clearly, we cannot call this extension a serious danger but it would be a mistake to take it lightly enough to leave it on your system. We suggest that you remove EZbrowsing Search from your browsers as soon as you can. Please continue reading our full report on this PUP to learn how you can protect your PC from similar threats landing on it.testtesttest

Where does EZbrowsing Search come from?

Although it is quite unlikely but you may have found and visited the promotional page at ezbrowsing.com or the Chrome web store page at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ezbrowsing-search/iddliihhbcncedkejmfceijfbpoieggn. If this is how you installed this PUP, you should have noticed a suspicious step in which you are offered to install another similarly questionable product on a redirected page, such as private.myappzcenter.com/wim/lp/offer/special.php?t=gomovix&ref=unknown&ct=ye61strtrfnrml.118. Please note that this PUP uses a deceptive technique to promote this other tool since it leads you to believe that the installation will only be finished if you install this other tool, which is a false claim. No wonder why we would recommend that you delete EZbrowsing Search even after knowing this little about it.

But it only gets worse when you realize that this PUP can also be found in freeware bundles, which may carry more serious malware infections as well. It is quite easy to infect your system with such a package that may contain browser hijackers, Trojans, keyloggers, adware programs, and more. All you need to do is download a cracked program or a movie from a suspicious file-sharing website (torrent or shareware) or click on a corrupt third-party advertisement. It is also possible to infect your computer with further threats when it was previously infected with adware or a browser hijacker, which both may display unsafe third-party ads and links while you are surfing. No wonder why we keep emphasizing that you should run a trustworthy online malware scanner to identify all threats after you delete EZbrowsing Search.

How does EZbrowsing Search work?

Similarly to its predecessors, this PUP also changes your default search engine. Now there are two ways for you to use your address bar in Google Chrome to search the web. If you simply enter your keywords and hit Enter, your query will be forwarded to media.eanswers.com and then, to Yahoo. This way, you could be exposed to promoted affiliate ads and links, which may not always be reliable. In other words, it would be risky to click on any content on this page as you could drop infections or open new tabs with malicious pages if you were to click on the wrong ad or link. If you type "s" in the address bar and press the Tab key, you will end up on a search page on the gomovix.com website, which is a questionable video streaming website. You should know that this site displays possibly unreliable third-party ads and may not play any videos at all. Instead, you could be simply redirected to a search engine with your keywords. All in all, we believe that you should take action now and remove EZbrowsing Search from your computer.

How do I delete EZbrowsing Search?

The only silver lining in this case is that you can easily eliminate this annoying PUP from your computer. All you need to do is delete this extension via the Extension Manager in your Google Chrome browser. We have included our guide below so that you can quickly take care of this tool. It is important that we emphasize that this PUP may be the least problematic threat on your computer. However, you may not be able to identify, detect, and erase all other threats without leaving possible leftovers on your system. Therefore, we advise you to find and install a reliable malware removal application like SpyHunter as soon as possible. It is also important that you keep all your programs up-to-date if you would like to protect your PC against possible cyber attacks trying to exploit old and known security bugs.
