The following fields listed on the Threat Meter containing a specific value, are explained in detail below:
Threat Level: The threat level scale goes from 1 to 10 where 10 is the highest level of severity and 1 is the lowest level of severity. Each specific level is relative to the threat's consistent assessed behaviors collected from SpyHunter's risk assessment model.
Detection Count: The collective number of confirmed and suspected cases of a particular malware threat. The detection count is calculated from infected PCs retrieved from diagnostic and scan log reports generated by SpyHunter.
Volume Count: Similar to the detection count, the Volume Count is specifically based on the number of confirmed and suspected threats infecting systems on a daily basis. High volume counts usually represent a popular threat but may or may not have infected a large number of systems. High detection count threats could lay dormant and have a low volume count. Criteria for Volume Count is relative to a daily detection count.
Trend Path: The Trend Path, utilizing an up arrow, down arrow or equal symbol, represents the level of recent movement of a particular threat. Up arrows represent an increase, down arrows represent a decline and the equal symbol represent no change to a threat's recent movement.
% Impact (Last 7 Days): This demonstrates a 7-day period change in the frequency of a malware threat infecting PCs. The percentage impact correlates directly to the current Trend Path to determine a rise or decline in the percentage.

The Brality Chrome Extension is a suspicious extension, which is only compatible with Google Chrome, and is being distributed via misleading advertisements, which tell users that they need to 'Add extension to keep you in safe browsing.' We assure you that this message is fake, and Brality will not do anything to enhance the security of your Web browsing sessions. In fact, it might end up just doing the opposite by redirecting all of your searches to Brality.com, and then take you to Yahoo Search. Neither Brality nor Brality.com is associated with a reputable developer so that it is possible that the Brality Chrome Extension and the website that it promotes might be maintained by someone whose intentions aren't friendly entirely.
Security researchers report that the Brality Chrome Extension does not exhibit any unsafe behavior, but the add-on has been classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). The removal of such software is not mandatory, but some users might prefer to get rid of them since PUPs may often tamper with the system or the browser settings to promote certain content. In the case of the Brality Chrome Extension, users might end up noticing that their default search provider has been changed so that all search queries executed through the address bar will take them to Brality.com first, and then end up referring them to Yahoo Search.
Since the Brality Chrome Extension does not offer anything helpful and its purpose is to promote Brality.com simply, then we have no other choice but to recommend this add-on's removal. The best way to carry out this task is with the assistance of a credible PC security application.
