Multiplug-FYF also known as Multiplug-FYF[PUP] is classified as a potentially unwanted program. Potentially unwanted programs are often included in the packages of free software products available for download on the Web. The method is dubbed bundling and may be avoided by opting for the advanced installer. Once installed, Multiplug-FYF may become a gateway to more PUPs and malicious software.
Multiplug-FYF Distribution Method
One possible way the PUP was downloaded to a computer is via bundling. However, under the ‘advanced’ option upon installation the user can uncheck added programs. Bundling of products is a marketing technique that is mostly applied for financial reasons such as covering losses and monetizing platforms.
Once installed, Multiplug-FYF may contribute to several issues. More potentially unwanted applications may flood the PC and slow it down. Occasional freezes and crashes are also possible to keep happening until the threat is terminated. Multiplug-FYF may also alter the browser’s settings so that numerous pop-up windows appear within the browser.
Clicking them may redirect the user to attack’s pages where malware is distributed, and phishing is executed. The affected user’s overall privacy may suffer as well. Some potentially unwanted programs may be considered privacy-invasive since personally identifiable information may be collected for the sake of third party marketers. To stay safe and to avoid being affected by PUPs, the user should always read the download agreement of any free software product he intends to download from the Internet.
Since the PUP may alter not only the browser’s settings but also the system’s ones, scanning the system with the help of a powerful anti-malware tool is recommended.
