What is Internet-start.net?

Has this hijacker changed the homepage on your web browsers already? When this infection attacks, users either try to get rid of it right away, or they investigate it to see if it can be trusted. Unfortunately, this browser hijacker is very deceptive, and computer users are often tricked into thinking that it is a different version of the popular Google Search. This is a very deceptive trick, and we are hopeful that computer users will recognize it before it is too late. Are you one of the skeptics that think they do not need to remove Internet-start.net? Well, we are about to change your mind. This article explains the reasons for eliminating this hijacker.
How does Internet-start.net work?
People trust Google because they know exactly how it works and they know it is reliable. This is why the developer of Internet-start.net uses the credentials of Google to trick users. Although the interface of this hijacker is original, the search box represents the so-called Google Custom Search. On top of that, the Help, Privacy, and Terms links route to Google-representing pages. Unfortunately, this is not an indication that Internet-start.net belongs to Google, but this tricks many users into thinking that this hijacker is trustworthy, when it is not. As a matter of fact, this infection is very unpredictable, and the lack of information regarding it worries our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com. Do you know which parties this hijacker supports or allows deliver content? Do you know if your personal information is safe with this hijacker on your browsers? Because this kind of information is hidden from users, we need to consider the worst of scenarios.
Although Internet-start.net shows the search results of Google, they are modified to show sponsored links promoting the sites/products of affiliates. While this might seem irrelevant, our researchers want to warn you that sponsored links could be employed by cyber criminals to boost traffic to malicious sites and to expose you to malware, drive-by download attacks, or scams. If you wish to avoid this, you have to be extremely careful about how you interact with the content provided to you, and what kind of software you allow to run on your operating system.
