What is Search.searcheeh.com?
Finding Search.searcheeh.com as your home page, new tab page, or default search engine in your browsers could mean that your computer has been penetrated by a potentially harmful browser hijacker. It is also possible that this hijacker installs itself silently without your knowledge, i.e., breaching your privacy. You may think that it is fine to have a different search page for a change but you should know that this browser hijacker may be unreliable and present to you unsafe third-party content. That is why it is important that you remove Search.searcheeh.com as soon as you find it in your browsers. Failing to do so could result in more malware infections on your system or even worse; you may get scammed by cyber criminals through malicious websites. Please read on to find out more about this threat so that you know how to handle this attack.
Where does Search.searcheeh.com come from?
Just because our malware specialists at Anti-Spyware-101.com have categorized this threat as a browser hijacker, it does not mean that is has no official availability. As a matter of fact, this browser extension is promoted as a time saver for those who want to send e-mails faster. You can find the official website at emailenhanced.co, which is indeed a single webpage. This extension is also available for installation at the Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/email-enhanced/ekonkneipdhgcnnboipkiaihdmeaampi. From this store you can see that only around 360 users have installed this tool. But we do not think that most users who are infected with this useless tool have ever visited these options.
In fact, it is much more likely that you install this browser hijacker by clicking on corrupt third-party ads, such as pop-ups. This can happen if your computer is already infected with malware that is capable of displaying third-party ads, including Gamevance Ads, SunnyDay-App, and MicroworksPC. It is also possible that you click on such an ad when visiting a suspicious website (torrent, gaming, and shareware). In any case, you should not click on third-party ads and you should always download software from trustworthy sources to stay on the safe side. If you ended up with this annoying browser hijacker on your system, there is a good chance there are other malware infections as well. That is why we advise you to run a system malware scan after you delete Search.searcheeh.com.
How does Search.searcheeh.com work?
The creators of this hijacker seem to have a thing for browser hijacking and making easy money out of them because this extension is actually identical to a number of infections, including Search.searchlttrn.com and Search.getmaps.co. This tool offers you quick links to major e-mail service providers (Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, Hotmail) on a fake toolbar. Furthermore, you also have two search tools you can use for web search; although, we do not recommend that. In fact, this hijacker may use promoted third-party sites to integrate its own third-party ads in. But the main issue is the search engine itself. In reality, this extension simply redirects all your searches to a possibly modified Yahoo search results page. This means that this browser hijacker can inject its affiliates’ ads and sponsored links among the normal results. Since cyber criminals can easily take advantage of this infection, it is possible that you click on corrupt content that can take you to malicious websites and cause you more infections. But you may also find yourself on a fake online shop where your credit card details could be stolen; not to mention your personal identity. If you want to save yourself from such scenarios, we suggest that your remove Search.searcheeh.com right now.
