    What is FastFreshTabs:

    Threat Classification: PUP

    FastFreshTabs (a.k.a Fast Fresh Tabs, FastFreshTabs Add-on or FastFreshTabs Extension) is a web application, that claims to provide users with a browser button or a keyboard shortcut combination, which will reload all open tabs and some users might initially find this functionality useful and handy.

This fact was enough to us as well as to the majority of the most reputable malware researchers to classify FastFreshTabs application as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program).  The actual application however, seem to miss malicious functionality and is wrong to be classified as a virus or malware, but nevertheless, users often experience issues while removing the FastFreshTabs extension from their computers and as its distribution method is highly suspicious and according to many researchers even rogue and dangerous. Apart from this, our malware experts pointed to the fact. that the F5 button and the CTRL+R keyboard shortcut are used for reloading the current tab, without any new installs. [Read More…]
