This search engine is classified as a browser hijacker, and you do not want to face it every time you launch your browser.

How does Go.bonefreeze.com work?

Since Go.bonefreeze.com does not have an official installer, it is no wonder it comes bundled with third-party programs. Most commonly, it spreads with PdfPro100, but all kinds of programs could be packaged along with the hijacker. It all comes down to the installer that is promoting the bundle. According to our research team, the hijacker usually spreads in the UK, and so the bundles are likely to be specifically distributed via British file-sharing websites. Be cautious about those. Of course, you should be cautious about software bundles in general because, in most cases, they are used to spread unpopular or malicious programs. If you end up installing Go.bonefreeze.com along with something else, a legitimate malware scanner can help you determine whether or not you need to delete it just like the browser hijacker itself. Since you are reading this report, the chances are that you have already made up your mind about the removal of the hijacker. Unfortunately, many users might not suspect a threat because the hijacker looks like a normal search engine. Well, looks can be deceiving.

If you are familiar with this engine, you might see no harm in trusting the results that are shown to you. The thing is that the hijacker can include sponsored content, and that means that the results can be modified. Can you trust a search engine that shows modified results? Of course, you cannot. Now, we have nothing against Yahoo Search. It is a terrific search engine, if used properly. If you chose to set it as your homepage and default search provider, do so, just make sure that it is not introduced to you via some unfamiliar engine. If you ignore the issue, and continue using Go.bonefreeze.com, you might end up interacting with search results that are not trustworthy. We are sure you want to avoid visiting potentially malicious sites, and facing scams suspicious advertisements or surveys that might be used by schemers. You might decide to just ignore the search engine, but even when you are not using it, its data trackers could continue recording information about you, and that is why we advise removing the hijacker instead of ignoring it.
