YourDailyTrailer is a browser extension that is promoted as a program that helps movie enthusiast gain access to a wide range of catalogs of films and explores trailers for soon to be released media contents. It supports Google Chrome browser and can be found on Yourdailytrailer.yournewtab[.]com and at Chrome.google[.]com/webstore/detail/your-daily-trailer/edaiejofkjoolebkceoecjgpchnfhjnf.

It may seem like a harmless program, but it is categorized as both a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and a browser hijacker for reasons that will be discussed later on.
