Where does come from?

The applications setup is signed by a company called Sail Machine. Our researchers at could not find any information about this publisher, although we have noticed this name previously while researching similar browser hijackers. It is possible that the company is a fake one, so the search engine’s creators remain unknown. Another thing we learned is that might settle on users’ computers while installing a browser extension known as YourTelevisionCenter. The add-on might be distributed with bundled installers or through malicious pop-up ads.

How does work?

The research shows that may display modified search results. The difference between the results shown by origin Yahoo search engine and the browser hijacker is that this application might include suspicious advertisements. Such content could promote products of the software’s third party partners. Since while clicking the ads you might be redirected to third-party web pages this would help increase their traffic, and for this, the search engine’s creators could get paid. Thus, as you realize, the application was not created to enhance your browsing, but rather to generate revenue by displaying you annoying advertising.

The worst is that not all of the displayed ads may come from reliable web pages. Part of them could lead you to malicious sites with harmful content, e.g. ransomware, viruses, and other infections. Third-party web pages may also invade your privacy while gathering sensitive or personal data. Therefore, you should be extra careful if while using you get redirected to web pages that ask to submit any personal information. Sadly, identifying potentially harmful web pages might be difficult, so it would be safer to get rid of the software, which could show you such content.
