    FunkyMediaTab is just another Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), that our malware researchers have discovered and classified as dangerous, mainly because of the intrusive ads marketing and because of the suspicious behaviour, once installed (it collects lots of private browsing data). The FunkyMediaTab adware is known to infiltrate users systems without their consent or other permission and may cause random unwanted browser redirects, browser settings modification and/or other potentially harmful events for your computer. Although, that the FunkyMediaTab adware may look and feel like a regular and legit software app, the majority of the reputable malware researchers around the world classified it as a dangerous adware and/or a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), capable of causing lots of damage and even data loss on the user PC.

After a closer review, our security researchers warned us, that the FunkyMediaTab Ads are caused by a malicious browser extension, which primary goal is to generate as many web hits as possible, which actually earn revenue for its developers! Finally, our security analysts concluded that the FunkyMediaTab Adware is just another ad-supported program, that may and will use all kinds of deceptive and malicious tactics, just to make you install it. Once installed, the FunkyMediaTab adware will start displaying lots and lots of irritating, unwanted ads, which are the main revenue generator for its developers. The distribution of these kinds of malware infections has being done mainly via suspicious or questionable software bundles, hosted by suspicious and even dangerous websites. These software bundles are usually configured to perform silent or stealth installations, to keep these extra installs away from the eyes of the victims. Once successfully installed, the FunkyMediaTab Adware will change your browser and/or system settings, making the recovery much harder. Moreover, FunkyMediaTab will start monitoring and collecting all kind of private data, including browsing history, web searches and their locations, account credentials, tracking cookies as well as other sensitive private information, which later will either be sold or shared with some 3rd party company, which at the end will use it for their own marketing purposes. If you have FunkyMediaTab installed on your PC, your desktop and/or browser window will most likely be filled with intrusive and very annoying web ads, banners, pop-up windows or other 3rd party advertisements. If you start getting various web ads, claiming that they are – By FunkyMediaTab, Ads by FunkyMediaTab, FunkyMediaTab Ads, Powered By FunkyMediaTab, Brought by FunkyMediaTab or Brought to you by FunkyMediaTab – you should consider your computer infected by a dangerous malware and we strongly advise you to remove the FunkyMediaTab adware as soon as possible.
