Do you know what Pink Lemonade Extension is?
Pink Lemonade Extension may appear in your Google Chrome browser after you click on unreliable third-party content while surfing the web. Even though this questionable and worthless browser extension is available officially for download, our researchers believe that it is more likely that you install it in questionable ways. This also means that you may find more serious threats on board as well, such as malware infections, which may have slithered onto your system along with this potentially unwanted program (PUP). Consequently, the presence of this PUP in your browser could be the sign of multiple virtual security issues. Although our researchers have not yet been able to link any suspicious operations to this extension, they say that you should remove Pink Lemonade Extension if you want to keep your system clean.
There is little chance that you would find salk.me, the promotional page of this PUP even if you were to search the web for the recipe of "pink lemonade." This page is very simple and has virtually no information about this browser extension, which makes it even less likely that anyone would install it. Basically, the whole page is comprised of an "Add extension to Chrome" button and that is all. When you press this button, you can directly install this tool. You can also use the Chrome web store to do so; and, you can find its page at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pink-lemonade/khkcgpbajgkfmkilijbhfinfeapcannh. It seems that nearly 5 thousand users have managed to install this PUP in this way. Yet, there are alternative ways to install it and you will surely want to delete Pink Lemonade Extension if you learn about them.
It is possible that you install this PUP by clicking on a deceptive pop-up advertisement. This ad may claim that your system is in danger and you need to install an urgent security update or software. However, instead, you would let this useless extension on board. This distribution method may be misleading and aggressive but it is not too dangerous to be frank. Unfortunately, you may also drop a free software bundle onto your system that could carry this PUP as well as malware infections like adware apps, Trojans, and browser hijackers. If you would like to avoid such infections, you should stick with official websites when it comes to installing free software and you should also stay away from suspicious websites like online gambling, gaming, dating, file-sharing pages. You need to think twice before clicking on a third-party ad as well if you do not want to end up having to delete Pink Lemonade Extension and other threats.Pink Lemonade Extension screenshot
