The first suspicious sign about this extension is that we have not found any official page where you could actually install it off of. In fact, the Chrome ID this PUP uses (“adnggmlkbkdbplckmbjjncnjnpeaclgd”) is unknown to the Chrome web store, which either means that this extension has been blocked by Google based on user reports as being potentially harmful or it had never been available for installation in the store. Either way, it is quite a worrisome situation to find out that there is an application on your computer that has no real official source. In fact, this alone should be just enough for you to want to delete Recipes Extension from your browser. But, of course, there is more to this PUP.

We have found that it is quite likely that you install this PUP via freeware bundles that could be promoted by questionable file-sharing sites, such as and It is always risky to download free or hacked programs from shady torrent or freeware pages because these sites mainly host questionable bundled versions that can contain several malware infections as well as PUPs like this one.
