What is Myluckysites.com?
Myluckysites.com looks like a normal search engine you could trust, but that is far from the truth. Sure, this tools works, but is it trustworthy? Our malware researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com think that it is not. After researching this search tool thoroughly, we have come to a conclusion that it should be classified as a browser hijacker. First of all, it is unlikely that this search tool is promoted on its own. You probably have downloaded it along with third-party programs that might be malicious as well. Maybe you did not want to install it at all? Second, even if you have installed it yourself, is it possible that maybe you have been misled? If a search tool is introduced to you with all kinds of beneficial features, but you realize that the tool is not all that great once you install it, you have the right to call it a hijacker because it was promoted using misleading information. Overall, we advise removing Myluckysites.com from your browsers, and we have more reasons for that.
How does Myluckysites.com work?
According to our research, Myluckysites.com might replace your regular homepage. If that is done illegally, without your permission, you will realize that a threat has slithered in right away. If you install the search tool yourself, you will expect to face it when you launch your browser. The look of the hijacker is not special in any way, besides the fact that the background displays an image. In the middle of the interface, you see a clock that tells the time, and, of course, a search dialog box that should help you browse the web. If you enter keywords into the dialog box – and it does not matter which search tool you use, Web, Images, Videos, or News – you will be redirected to the Google search engine. If you are familiar with this search engine, you might feel at ease; however, unauthorized redirecting to a third-party website is always a bad sign. As a matter of fact, this is a good enough reason to delete Myluckysites.com from your browsers right away.
At the bottom of the Myluckysites.com home page, we have a list of easy-access links that represent Facebook, Booking, Instagram, Twitter, Amazon, and eBay. If you expect to find a list of links to pages representing legal information below that, you are wrong. The creator of Myluckysites.com does not provide us with any information about this search tool, and that cannot be ignored. If you do not have access to legal information about the service provided by the hijacker, how can you know if it works to your advantage or if it works in a reliable manner? For all you know, this threat might use tracking cookies capable of recording and leaking personal data. It could also work with unreliable advertisers whose offers could be attached to the search results shown to you via Google Search. If you take these things into consideration, it is most likely that you will want to erase this hijacker from your browsers right away. According to our research, you might need to delete it from Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers.
