Being infected with malware or clicking on corrupt third-party content can always result in installing questionable programs like Aubamy Downloader. This browser extension only works in your Google Chrome browser. Since it is usually forced to be installed on your computer, we consider it a rather pushy way to market a product. Even more so that this tool is totally useless and it simply hijacks your default search engine and shows you questionable manipulated search results. We have categorized this extension as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because it does not really mean direct danger to you or to your system, but it might still pose a threat indirectly. We believe that even such a questionable program can cause system security issues in the long run; therefore, we suggest that you remove Aubamy Downloader and all other questionable and malicious programs from your system to be able to use a secure computer.

You cannot find an official website on the web that would promote this tool as a legitimate browser extension and you cannot find it in the Chrome web store either. This is rather suspicious already but there is more to come. The most likely way for you to install this annoying PUP is to end up on one of the pages at There is no way that you would visit this URL on purpose; you can only end up there by clicking on the wrong third-party ad or link that could be generated either by a malware program hiding on your PC or by a suspicious website. Let us see first these cases about how you can land on this site at all.

It is possible that you previously infected your system with adware program, browser hijackers, or PUPs, which can all perform redirections if programmed that way. We believe that most users let such infections on board by installing free software bundles. Such software packages can be downloaded when you click on unsafe third-party advertisements, fake banner or pop-up notifications, or fake buttons (navigation and download) or when you download free software from shady torrent or freeware pages. You need to be cautious when you are visiting websites if your PC is not protected properly by anti-malware software. If you end up on suspicious pages, chances are you may click on unreliable third-party ads or fake content, which usually results in your dropping a malware bomb on your system. If you do not want to be exposed to more potentially harmful third-party content while surfing the web, we suggest that you delete Aubamy Downloader and all other threat sources from your system. In order to find the other questionable program, we advise you to use a reliable online malware scanner. Once you see the bigger picture, you can start acting and eliminating the rest.

Apart from getting redirected to this malicious URL ( by malware, it is also possible that you simply click on the wrong content while viewing a shady website. We recommend that you try to avoid, for example, file-sharing, online gambling, gaming, dating, and porn sites that look suspicious or ones that host several third-party ads. Once you end up on this malicious page, it will display a pop-up window that tells you to install this PUP if you want to leave the page or it can try to persuade you in other ways to make you believe that you need to say OK to this. We consider this to be rather aggressive marketing and in this case, it also makes us question the reliability of this tool. Thus, we suggest that you delete Aubamy Downloader as soon as possible.

This PUP has no beneficial functions for you whatsoever. It does not download anything or help you in any way. In fact, we have found that it can hijack your default search engine and forward your search keywords you enter through the address bar to other questionable websites and finally land you on a manipulated Yahoo search results page. Now, this is a rather suspicious trait again because this gives space for the creators to insert potentially unreliable third-party advertisements and links among the legitimate ones. Even if you end up on a Yahoo results page in the end, you should not trust any content there because you could infect your computer with malware threats or get redirected to malicious websites if you click on anything unreliable. Therefore, we advise you to remove Aubamy Downloader right now.

If you want to eliminate this PUP yourself, you can follow our guide below this article. Practically, you can simply remove this unwanted extension from the list of extensions through your browser’s menu. It is essential though that you do not stop at this point and go on hunting down all other potential threats on your system. If this could be too much for your IT skills, we suggest that you install a proper anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter to protect your PC automatically against all known malware infections and potential threats like this PUP.
