Easyziptab.com virus is a Chrome toolbar by the same developers that introduced Slikdealer.com infection. Both of these hijackers were created by a company called Aztec Media Inc. To our knowledge, they are not reliable providers of search services and their search engines show sponsored results and threaten users’ privacy. Most of their tools are classified among malware parasites (https://www.sagedatasecurity.com/blog/seven-types-of-malware-you-should-be-aware-of). For instance, you might have read some of the articles, discussing parasites like Searchprotector.net or any other browser hijackers, created by Aztec Media.
Right before Easyziptab.com virus presents results to search queries in a page from Yahoo, you can see Blpsearch.com link in the address bar. This means that results to search queries are rearranged to feature websites, sponsored by Aztec Media.
Easyziptab.com hijacker will show a lot of sponsored content and will bother you with random pop-ups
Our analysis revealed that Easyziptab.com virus is going to feature content from a number of advertising companies. The top ad networks include Propeller Ads Media, Adk2, AdCash, PopAds, MixTraff and other ad-servers. Even though most of these companies are legitimate, this does not mean that they won’t occasionally include malware-laden or deceptive advertisements. Hackers are clever enough to trick advertising companies into accepting devious content (A New Wave Of Bad Ads Is Hijacking Even Top-Tier Websites).
Easyziptab.com virus will also cause redirection, and we noticed that one of the possible destination links is Youradexchange.com. As you can see, the browser hijacker will persistently shove third-party advertisements onto your computer screen, making it difficult to browse and to avoid malicious parasites.

The malicious toolbar will be able to change and modify the websites you visit, which means, that it will have no issue in adding third-party advertisements into random domains.
