Where does Broadband-search.com come from?
Since this browser hijacker does not have an official website where you could download it from directly as a standalone executable file, the most probable way for it to end up in your browsers is to infiltrate your computer in a free software bundle. However, malware threats rarely travel all alone. Therefore, it is quite likely that if this hijacker is on-board, there are other infections as well, including adware apps and other hijackers as well. So every time you open your browsers and go surfing, you may get exposed to annoying third-party ads, for instance. But these are not only distracting, of course, they can also redirect you to unreliable third-party websites.
You can download such bundles if you visit shady freeware sites, for example. Those sites are the main promoters of third-party installers that may quite often contain malware infections along with authentic free software. It is also possible to acquire such a package by simply clicking on a fake download button. A lot of times third-party ads are disguised to look like a “download” or “next” button. You need to be very careful if you end up on such a website, and we advise you to close the tab or even the browser window right away. It is also worth running a malware scan right after that, just in case. We recommend the same after deleting Broadband-search.com as well in order to make sure that your PC is secure to use.
