What is is another browser hijacker from Polarity Technologies Ltd that our researchers at came across.

Where does come from?

Thus, users who would not like to accidentally install such threats in the future should pay more attention to the tools they choose to install, to the installation process itself, and most importantly to the web pages they download such programs from. For users who do not think being cautious is enough, we would advise picking a legitimate antimalware tool of their preferences.

How does work?

For example, if it is Google Chrome, the threat might go to %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default and modify files called Preferences, Secure Preferences, and Web Data. Besides, Google Chrome, the application could also settle in on Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
