The website we are investigating today has been generated in February of 2015. The last update occurred on March of 2017.

Once queries are entered into search boxes, a new tab introduces results from Yahoo, but in a page which has been re-modeled to promote services that have become affiliated with Imali: “Imale Yahoo Search Results”. Knowing the fact that it accepts publishers and advertisers as partners, the company will need to find ways how the collected promotional material can be showed off. This is why browser extensions from Imali Media will include a condition, stating that every client is to be exposed to third-party promotions.

While the company might exploit all positive gibberish they wish, it is important to address that this monetization-oriented company has been producing a number of rogue search engines and browser extensions. Search.futuremediatabsearch.com, Search.yourmediatabsearch.com and Search.funkymediatab.com are one of the dodgy search engines that are brought by add-ons.

For instance, the Mynewtvsearch.com hijacker can be assigned by NewTabTV Chrome extension. The conditions of this add-on mention “useful links” to be included into search queries and visited domains.

The fact that the website and its owners openly-refuse to accept any warranties for their services is absurd. This should immediately make you think that the add-on could be trying to get away with the fact that it has accepted to promote domains and advertisements that could be delivering malicious scripts. No wonder all of the affairs with sponsored third-parties are not a concern for Imali.
