What is

After you install a free program that you downloaded from a questionable file-sharing site, it is possible that appears as your new home page in your major browsers. This search website features easy-access links to the most popular e-mail engines as well as the main “attraction,” the web search. Our malware researchers have found that this search engine was created by the notorious Polarity Technologies Ltd who is also responsible for dozens of other questionable search engines, including,, and In fact, our malware researchers labeled this threat as a browser hijacker just like all others coming from the same family. This hijacker may introduce you to potentially harmful third-party web content since promoting affiliates is the only way it can generate income for its creators. Since you can harm your system by engaging with such content, we recommend that you remove from your browsers as soon as possible.testtesttest

Where does come from?

Since there is no official promotional webpage to offer you this feature search page as a browser extension available for download, there has to be shady ways for it to be able to show up on your computer. In fact, a lot of users do not even realize installing this hijacker since it mostly spreads in free software bundles containing several other programs and threats. Such a bundle may pack a legitimate free program that might even work properly as well as malicious software installers (e.g., browsers hijackers, adware programs, and fake alerts) and potentially unwanted applications. You can download such a bundle while downloading free files from questionable file-sharing websites like and If you want to keep your PC protected, you need to avoid suspicious torrent and shareware pages because you can always drop a malicious package if you are not careful enough.

But this is not the only way that you can let such threats on board. When you are viewing suspicious gaming, gambling, file-sharing, and dating websites, there is a chance that you may click on corrupt content, such as third-party ads, fake buttons, and fake notifications. Of course, all of these may be third-party contents but you could be easily mislead and confused. If you are on an unfamiliar page, you can click on anything really and end up with a bundle of malware threats on your system. Therefore you need to understand the need for a proper system scan with a reliable online malware scanner right after you delete from your PC.

How does work?

This search engine page is supposed to have a fake toolbar at the top with a search tool and a couple of links leading to major e-mail servers, including Yahoo Mail, Outlook, and Hotmail. You can also find the same thumbnail links below the main search box. These links may work just fine but somehow we have found that there could be a temporary issue with this search engine and it does not seem to display all these features. In fact, right now we can only see the main search box and the logo that claims that it is “enhanced by Google.” This can, of course, confuse inexperienced users who may believe that the search results they are presented with are all trustworthy. Unfortunately, our research shows otherwise. As a matter of fact, this malware infection may manipulate these results by inserting potentially unreliable third-party advertisements and supported links. If you click on a corrupt ad or link accidentally, you may infect your system with further threats or end up on a malicious page and get scammed by criminals. If you do not want to experience such horrors, we suggest that you remove right away. Let us tell you how you can make your precious PC more secure.
