Where does come from?

We noticed that the application is available on the Chrome Web Store. Still, our researchers are almost one hundred present sure that the browser hijacker could be spread with bundled installers too. It might be that you received after launching a bundled setup file that suggested you to install an extension called Media Search. Under such circumstances, some users accept such hijackers because they either do not notice the offer on the setup wizard or do not read the given Terms of use. If either of these situations seem familiar, you should be more attentive while installing software the next time.

How does work?

As you already know, the application installs a browser extension that should be compatible with Google Chrome, but might work on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer too. Once the extension appears, hijacks the browser by replacing your usual search engine or homepage. Because of these changes the user might be forced to search with the provided tool.

Nevertheless, we advise you to use as less as possible. This browser hijacker’s End User License Agreement (EULA) document states that “Search Software may provide, or third parties may provide, search results or other links to other World Wide Web sites or resources or software.” This might mean that the search engine could include third-party advertisements in the results. Unfortunately, some of the third-party ads could originate from malicious web pages that seek to gather your sensitive data, distribute malware, etc.

Users should also know that the software’s creators do not take any responsibility in case you receive any harm while using the search engine. As a matter of fact, users are additionally warned that the application “may still be vulnerable to various security issues.” Such statements on the EULA makes it look like the software is rather insecure for you to use.
