Yellowmoxie

What is Yellowmoxie?

Yellowmoxie is often considered to be a computer virus and a browser hijacker that overtakes links on a target computer. It may also display annoying advertisements while you browse the web. However, Yellowmoxie’s malicious abilities are slightly too far-fetched, because first and foremost it is a website that provides you with links and information about social services (restaurants, entertainment, travel, business, banking, real estate etc.), discount coupons and online shopping. In case your home page is changed to this website, then you should scan your PC with SpyHunter free scanner as there is a high chance that you have installed potentially dangerous programs on your computer. If that is the case, do all it takes to remove Yellowmoxie and related applications from your computer.

Where does Yellowmoxie come from?

The website itself can be accessed at Yellowmoxie.com. Since there is no application or browser extension download link provided at the website itself, it is very likely that the Yellowmoxie arrived at your system along with a list of freeware applications you have downloaded at third-party websites. Whenever you download and install a freeware application (be it a video player or a shareware game), do read all the setup steps carefully, because it may install other additional software on your PC, or even change your browser settings as is the case with Yellowmoxie.Yellowmoxie

What does Yellowmoxie do?

Although having Yellowmoxie as your default home page may prove to be annoying, the website itself is not extremely dangerous. It actually functions as a sponge that collects data from search engines and queries to provide you with the most relevant results when it comes to local services. Nevertheless, it may also contain third-party advertisements and external links, and a line in the website’s Privacy Policy claims that it is not responsible for the privacy policy of third parties:

Please check the privacy policy of these advertisers and sites for information regarding their collection of information and use of cookies.

To put it simply – Yellowmoxie is not dangerous, but it could redirect you or expose you to corrupted websites and commercial pages that may either bombard you with even more pop-up ads for marketing purposes, or infect you with malware in the long run.
