PUP.Optional.FullTab is the detection for a few potentially unwanted Chrome extensions that are newtab hijackers.
PUP.Optional.FullTab takes control of which site will open when the user opens a new browser tab on an affected system. These extensions are promoted by adware and/or other potentially unwanted programs to trick the user into believing they are useful.
Malwarebytes blocks the domain that pushes the extensions.
Malwarebytes can detect and remove PUP.Optional.FullTab without further user interaction.
