What does Search.searchffn.com do?
The Search.searchffn.com search engine will set itself in the place of your default homepage, and you will also see it every time you open your New Tab page because it will hijack it. At first sight, Search.searchffn.com does not differ from other existing search engines; however, the truth is that it acts like such questionable search engines as search.myinterestsxp.com, search.mytelevisionxp.com, and search.myspeedtestxp.com. Talking more specifically, it is known that this search engine might present users with the modified search results. Actually, this is not very surprising for us specialists because we have managed to observe that Search.searchffn.com redirects all the searches from Search.searchffn.com to Yahoo!. It is very likely that sponsored links are put among the legitimate search results along the way. Unfortunately, it is hard to say which of the links are not associated with the entered keyword. To be honest, it is basically impossible to recognize and thus ignore those unreliable search results. Sadly, it is very dangerous to click on them because a link promoting a bad website run by cyber criminals might be provided for you too, and you might be taken there.
