Not so long ago we wrote about,, and which are very similar to this newest hijacker.

It is said that the bundles have been configured to inject into your browser automatically, provided that you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. This hijacker does not work on Microsoft Edge that is shipped with Windows 10.

The bundled installers interact with the web browsers and inject into them automatically without the users’ knowledge or authorization. It works like most browser hijackers in that it replaces the homepage address as well as the new tab page address for Chrome. features a clean, minimalistic design similar to that of Google. We think that it tries to copy to an extent so that some users would not notice the difference. However, the similarities end here as this hijacker redirects all entered search queries to a modified Yahoo search engine. The search results that you get are known to include additional promotional links that can redirect you to all kinds of shady websites.
