YaTab

YaTab

Not all extensions are equal. Some are beneficial and reliable. Others are useless and can be even malicious. YaTab falls somewhere in the middle of the spectrum. This extension does offer seemingly useful services, but it also acts as a browser hijacker that takes over the browser and redirects all search queries to a third-party engine. In the past, Ask.com was the engine of choice; however, Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have found that it currently redirects to Google Search. Can the results be trusted? They were not modified during our research, but we cannot guarantee that that is what you will face also. In general, if you were not informed that your searches would be redirected, changed, or messed with in any manner, trusting the search service is not a good idea. As you can guess, we advise deleting YaTab, and if you have no idea how you should proceed, just continue reading.

Go.bonanzoro.com

Go.bonanzoro.com

Installers that promote Go.bonanzoro.com cannot be trusted because this search tool is a browser hijacker, and the programs packaged along with it are unlikely to be reliable. If you are in a situation, in which you are deciding whether or not to go on with the installation of the software bundle, you should find a better way to install desirable software, especially if you are not provided with the option to reject undesirable programs. If you have downloaded the hijacker and accompanying programs already, you need to be extremely careful about what you do next. If you choose to interact with the downloaded programs carelessly, you could get yourself in trouble. On the other hand, if you research what you have downloaded, you might avoid security issues. We do not claim that all programs and extensions bundled along with the hijacker are malicious and require removal, but it is in your own interest to research them to make sure they are harmless. Whether or not you need to worry about other threats, in this report, we focus on deleting Go.bonanzoro.com. Read more »

Go.bonefreeze.com

Go.bonefreeze.com

If you ever encounter an installer that offers to set Go.bonefreeze.com as the default search provider, new tab page, or homepage, the smart thing to do is to terminate the installation. This search engine is classified as a browser hijacker, and you do not want to face it every time you launch your browser. The interface of this hijacker is certainly confusing, as it gives an impression that it is just a regular search engine that can be trusted with web browsing. It cannot because it redirects and shows results that are modified. In the past, the hijacker would redirect to Bing Search. At the time of research, it was routing to Yahoo Search. In the future, we might see it redirecting someplace else. The same is true for the clones of this hijacker, Go.deepteep.com, Go.bonanzoro.com, and Go.querymo.com. We recommend deleting them all for the same reasons that are presented in this report. If you too want to learn how to remove Go.bonefreeze.com, do not hesitate to continue reading. Read more »

Searchall.network

Searchall.network might not raise any suspicion until you take a closer look at it. What our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com noticed, while testing the application in question, is that it does not provide information about the publisher’s policy on privacy issues usually explained on Privacy Policy.

Because of this, we do not think it would be wise to use Searchall.network. Provided you feel the same, we recommend deleting the questionable tool with the instructions located at the end of this article.
