Delta-Homes

What is Delta-Homes?

Delta-Homes is a browser hijacker that changes your home page address and the default search engine to delta-homes.com. Although the website itself is not malicious, you are strongly advised to remove Delta-Homes from your computer and restore your default browser settings immediately.

The most dangerous thing about Delta-Homes is that could be indirectly responsible for malware infection. It means that you need to remove Delta-Homes from your PC if you want to avoid any potential security risk.

Where does Delta-Homes come from?

It is very likely that Delta-Homes is directly related to PortaldoSites and Qone8.com browser hijackers, although it is obvious that Delta-Homes is more sophisticated one. While previous browser hijackers had only a customized search box, Delta-Homes comes with a custom search box, a list of shortcuts and gaming advertisements.  There are no Terms of Service or Privacy Policy sections at the home page which is immediately suspicious.test

Also, the homepage for Delta-Homes does not provide any download link that would suggest the possibility of downloading and installed the file manually. Thus, the browser hijacker tricks users into downloading it by bundling the installation file together with freeware applications. Consequently, you need to be extremely careful when you download something from third party websites, because the free software program you download may come along together with Delta-Homes, and your browser settings can be changed without your permission.

What does Delta-Homes do?

As it has been mentioned above, Delta-Homes changes your home page to delta-homes.com. It offers shortcuts to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, eBay, Yahoo!, Hotmail and other popular domains. Also, below the shortcuts it has advertisements for online gaming sites. It definitely does not look dangerous, but you have to keep in mind, that it is better NOT to click on any of the ads offered to you by a browser hijacker. The same can be applied to the search results via Delta-Homes search engine – it uses customized Google search, but the search results often redirect you to commercial websites.
