Do you know what Edematousliterature Extension is?
Edematousliterature Extension is a suspicious Google Chrome add-on that has been found to be forced upon users. This add-on is represented via a misleading page that goes full-screen and that displays a bogus notification suggesting that you must install the add-on if you want to leave the page. Needless to say, when a notification like this one shows up, the last thing you need to do is obey. Instead, you need to close the browser, install and run a legitimate malware scanner, and, potentially, delete malicious threats. If you have installed it already, you also need to remove Edematousliterature Extension. Even if you find it useful or fun, trusting it would be a mistake. Note that there are different versions of this extension, and the name we are using is an umbrella name representing all add-ons coming from the same source, edematousliterature.com.

According to our research, Edematousliterature Extensions are always represented via the suspicious edematousliterature.com, but it is unknown how exactly users are exposed to this page. It is possible that you could be redirected to it when you interact with corrupted links hidden within ads and pop-ups. You could also be redirected to it by adware and potentially unwanted programs running on your PC. Since that is a possibility, we suggest using a legitimate malware scanner to do a quick investigation. If you find that you need to remove malware, you should get on with it as soon as possible because that might be the only way to get rid of the annoying pop-up. By the way, the pop-up with the installer is represented via http://edematousliterature.com/bn.php. In the past, this page was promoting an add-on called “Edentulatecontrol extension,” but more recently it was offering an add-on called “Syamit.” At the moment, the page is down, and nothing is promoted at all, but we are sure that other extensions might be involved as well. Whichever one you have downloaded, we recommend removing.
When you are introduced to the installer of Edematousliterature Extension, the page goes full screen, and you might think that your browser was paralyzed disabling access to the entire operating system. That might push some into downloading the extension that is introduced to them. Unfortunately, if you install these extensions, you might be enabling unreliable parties to record personal information, flood you with advertisements, initiate redirecting, and cause security-related problems. The good news is that you do not need to do anything to disable full-screen. Try pressing the F11 key on the keyboard, and the browser might go back to normal. If that does not work, use the Alt+Tab key combination to switch between windows, then select Desktop, and close the browser from there. You can also try launching Task Manager by tapping Ctrl+Shift+Esc and terminating the process of the browser. Of course, if you already have installed it, you should delete Edematousliterature Extension.
Do you know how to delete Edematousliterature Extension from your Google Chrome browser? If you do not, we recommend using the instructions below. Note that the actual name of the extension might be different (e.g., Edentulatecontrol or Syamit), but you should have no trouble identifying and erasing it. If you have not performed a full malware scan by this point, we recommend that you do it ASAP. If other infections exist, you need to get rid of them sooner rather than later. If you are unable to handle the situation yourself, entrust a legitimate anti-malware tool to handle the removal automatically.

In non-techie terms:
Whichever version of the Edematousliterature Extension you are introduced to you, remember that you do not need to install it even if the pop-up representing it claims that you do. The misleading pop-up is simply used to make sure that you install an add-on that could potentially be malicious and intrusive. If you have installed it, our research team recommends deleting it as soon as possible. You can follow the instructions above, or, if more threats are found, you can employ anti-malware software. Whichever option you choose, you have to make sure that your operating system is clean; otherwise, you could get yourself into trouble.
