Search.youreasyemailsh.com

Search.youreasyemailsh.com

Search.youreasyemailsh.com is another browser hijacker from Polarity Technologies Ltd that our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com came across. For example, before we learned about this threat we encountered Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com, Search.searchw3m.com, Search.searchlttrn.com, and quite a lot of other clones alike. Clearly, they do not offer any enhanced or unique features, even though their descriptions could say otherwise. In reality, such search engines mostly use a modified google.com or search.yahoo.com versions to gather the results. However, before the results get to be displayed these browser hijackers might inject them with untrustworthy advertising material. Therefore, our researchers recommend not to waste any time with Search.youreasyemailsh.com or other suspicious tools alike.

Newtab.win

Newtab.win

Newtab.win is a search tool that might come as a redirect. That is, you might see this page because you are redirected straight to it when you open your web browser. If you already see it open for you, it is very likely that some kind of untrustworthy browser extension has been installed on your browser. Check the list of extensions and remove all suspicious ones to get rid of Newtab.win. Do this as soon as possible because the search tool you see is definitely not the most trustworthy search provider. Theoretically, you might even be exposed to potential threats if you use it. We know that it does not look dangerous at all, but we can assure you that it is not one of those search tools that can be trusted. Actually, you should not trust any search provider that appears on your browser out of the blue because legitimate search tools do not occupy users’ browsers without their knowledge. Users only see them because they set these search providers consciously on their browsers as new homepages/default search engines. As you can see, Newtab.win is not one of them. Therefore, it should be eliminated right away so that it could not cause any problems. As mentioned at the beginning of this paragraph, the chances are high that its appearance is directly linked to the installation of the untrustworthy browser extension. If it turns out to be true in your case too, i.e. you come across a suspicious extension, remove it mercilessly because it is the only way to make sure that you will no longer see Newtab.win.

Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com

Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com

Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com looks like one of the Polarity Technologies Ltd browser hijackers. Our researchers confirmed it after taking a look at the software’s Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement documents. Not to mention, the application looks almost the same as the other browser hijackers from this company that we have already tested earlier. All of its clones provide a search box and a toolbar containing links to various web pages. In this case, the threat offers links to sites providing news, reports, weather forecast, and so on.
