Fusion Browser

What is Fusion Browser?

Fusion Browser is a potentially unreliable browser application that might introduce you to some virtual security issues if you keep it on board. Our researchers have labeled it as a PUP, i.e., a potentially unwanted program because of the suspicious traits it showed while they were testing it. This application may not be a dangerous threat to your operating system, but it does not mean that you can totally ignore the fact that indirectly it might expose you to, for example, potentially unreliable third-party content. It can also happen that you simply find this PUP on your computer and you do not even recall installing it. Lots of users make the mistake of not taking potentially unwanted programs seriously enough and they end up with more serious malware infections before long. If you do not want to make this same mistake, we advise you to read our full article on this PUP to see why we suggest that you should remove Fusion Browser. Of course, it is your choice what you decide in the end, but it may help you to see more clearly if you understand the potential risks surrounding this application.testtest

Where does Fusion Browser come from?

As a matter of fact, this PUP may come from different sources and in different versions as well. It has a promotional page, getfusionbrowser.com, where you can try to download it. However, according to our researchers, it is possible that your browser will block the installer executable file as soon as it downloads to your computer. Of course, this is why it is so important to keep your browsers and all your programs updated frequently so that they are more secure. Although this is a rather questionable trait, we do not believe that too many people would end up on this site when they are looking for a browser application.

Unfortunately, you can also find this application in software bundles. Most often bundles do not only contain one infection. So it is quite likely that if you download this version, there will be other even more dangerous malware infections on your computer. Our researchers have found that Fusion Browser can have a few extra extensions in the bundled version on top of the usual ones you can find in the official one, such as Facebook, streaming music, and local weather. However, the browser extensions in the bundle have the capability of displaying potentially harmful third-party ads, which are always bad news for users since clicking on these ads may easily result in landing on malicious websites run by cyber criminals; and that never ends well.

You can download such malicious bundles from shady file-sharing websites, such as pornographic, torrent, and freeware sites. Sometimes even landing on such a page can trigger a malicious code that can drop some unpleasant “surprises” onto your computer. But most often the reason behind the infection is that users click on fake buttons, i.e., unsafe and misleading third-party advertisements posing as buttons. Again, one click is enough on the wrong button, link, or pop-up ad, and a bundle packed with malware infections may enter your system. We advise you to delete Fusion Browser and run a full-system malware scan to make sure there are no other threats present. Because if there are, you will not be secure on your computer until you make them go away.

What does Fusion Browser do?

This application is a chromium engine-based browser. The problematic part of this program is most probably the search bar at the top. All your queries get redirected to a questionable Israeli search engine called trovi.com. Your search is supposed to be further redirected then to a bing.com results page that might be modified to include third-party links and ads. But it seems that trovi.com has been blocked due to a violation of terms of use. This is quite worrisome when it comes to trusting an application. We suggest that you use a reputable browser application instead of any no-name ones because you simply cannot rely on them fully. As for this PUP, we think that you should remove it before you click on something that brings more trouble to your PC.
