Where does come from?

Unfortunately, this malware infection mostly travels in free software packages that may pack a number of malware infections together with an authentic free program. These bundles are rather misleading and can cause a lot of problems for unsuspecting computer users. This browser hijacker seems to come with Results Hub software, which mainly uses bundling as an easy and quick way to spread on the web.

If you have searched for freeware recently or even installed one, chances are you ended up on a questionable shareware site at one point. It is easy to be misled on such pages and, for example, click on fake download buttons. That is how most users get infected with these malicious bundles. So, if you have this browser hijacker on your computer, it is quite possible that there are more threats to worry about. Since deleting will not be enough for you to feel totally safe in your virtual world, we advise you to remove all other related infections as well.

What does do?

This is a completely useless tool in your browser since it uses redirection to Yahoo! search results instead of showing its own results page, which, by the way, “says hello” for a quick moment, but it gets abruptly overwritten by the Yahoo! page. Since this hijacker is capable of altering these results, you cannot trust them for a second. We do not advise you to click on any of the links for this reason.

It is also possible that this search engine will start showing you different types of third-party ads, including banners, pop-ups, and interstitials. These might hold potential risks for your virtual security since no one can guarantee the reliability of the websites you might land on. For example, you might be exposed to questionable websites that host unsafe third-party ads that may also be disguised as buttons or something useful to you. Clicking on those can cause more infections and more exposure to cyber criminals. Therefore, your only solution is to remove if you would like to keep your PC secure.
