Where does come from?

If you find this browser hijacker in your browsers, chances are you have been a bit careless lately. Unfortunately, it is most likely that you yourself let this threat onto your machine probably accompanied by other malware infections, too. This can happen when you use questionable sources (torrent and freeware sites) for downloading free programs and movies. These pages are usually filled with all kinds of deceptive content, such as fake download buttons and navigational buttons, but you may also find malicious scripts at work. The latter means that you may simply click anywhere on the page, even in a search field, and you could trigger the opening of new tabs or windows with malicious content or simply dropping a bundle of threats. This is a typical situation when deleting will not be enough for you to restore your system security.

But you can also drop a bundle when you click on a corrupt third-party advertisement on any website that may promote questionable third parties. These generally include gaming, gambling, file-sharing, and porn-related pages. One click on the wrong content on such pages and you could download a bundle packed with malicious software installers and potentially unwanted applications in the background. This can also happen when your computer is infected with adware or any other threat that can display third-party ads (a browser hijacker or even a potentially unwanted app). If you want to feel safe again, we suggest that after you delete, you run a full-system malware scan on your computer using any trustworthy online malware scanner.

How does work?

This search website is a bit different from most browser hijackers because it displays lots of links leading to all kinds of popular websites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and eBay) in different categories (social media, news, and sports). However, we do not advise you to click on any of these even if some may be totally harmless. As a matter of fact, when you get redirected to these sites from this search site, chances are you will find yourself on a page where customized promotions will be displayed, including tailored third-party ads. This can be misused by cyber criminals to lure you onto their fake online shop sites or other malicious pages to scam you.

The same can happen if you run a web search on this page since it redirects all your queries to modified Yahoo search results pages. These can display questionable third-party ads and links as part of the promotional campaign this hijacker runs to generate revenue. One click and you could end up on a malicious website and infect your system with new threats or lose money by being scammed. We hope that these possibilities are just enough for you to make up your mind and remove from your computer.
