What is Aartemis?
Aartemis, or www.aartemis.com, is a search engine owned by Koyoter Technology Limited, and which is also promoted by some unwanted computer application. The search engine can be accessed on any PC through any internet browser, and it is referred to as a browse hijacker because of the changes that are made on the browsers. Aartemis replaces the home page, new tabs, and search provider on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, and if the settings of your browsers are already changed, remove aartemis from the PC as soon as you can.
Why should you remove aartemis?
Aartemis is presented as a global meta-search engine, which means that it provides the user with the search results that are acquired from other search providers, including Google and Yahoo. It also means that not unique content is provided. If you have aartemis on your browsers, it may redirect you to search.yahoo.com. Those of you who are familiar with Yahoo Search know that the Yahoo Search provides the users not only with search results but with sponsored links, too. They are labeled as advertisements and are likely to be filtered according to your search queries and earlier preferences. Even thought Yahoo declares that they seek to provide the user with as relevant advertisements as possible, there can always by some exceptions. We recommend that you remove aartemis because you can access Yahoo or any other search engine directly, and you should not keep any insecure application on your PC.
Aartermis, like a majority of search engines, collects non-personally identifiable information, which includes search terms, your clicks, the time spent on different websites, your IP address, the version of the browsers, and so on. They claim that they do not share information with any third party, but it does not mean that you cannot be exposed to other dangers.
Koyoter can insert various links to third-party websites on the search engine and disclaims responsibility for your actions on the websites to which you are taken by those links. The developers of aartemis neither control nor endorse the content of the websites to which you are exposed, which means that the interaction with those links, or advertisements, is your own responsibility.
For example, aartemis promotes a computer game from 337.com, which has been promoted by other search engines, too. You may also find an invitation to install Yet Another Cleaner (YAC), which is a system optimizer that is not trusted by some malware researchers. Ignore all those advertisements and remove aartemis from the PC if you want to browse the Internet safely.
