Search.searchmmap.com

In this report, we would like to talk about a recently created browser hijacker called Search.searchmmap.com. However, despite its release date, the application is actually not so new. As our researchers report, it is more like a clone of already known browser hijackers. For example, Search.searchyea.com, Search.searchsterjosoft.com, Search.searchcounn.com, and other similar search engines developed by a suspicious company called Polarity Technologies LTD. Unlike legitimate search engines, Search.searchmmap.com and its other clones may show you modified search results that could include malicious advertising content. Thus, our researchers advise against its usage and recommend removing it before anything goes wrong. If you ...

Ntk Ransomware

Ntk Ransomware does not encrypt any personal files users have, but it has still been classified as ransomware due to its ability to block access to the computer. There is no doubt that it does that to obtain money from people who desperately need to access their systems. French-speaking users should be cautious the most because this ransomware-type threat targets them mainly. Of course, since it can enter computers illegally, users living on the other side of the world can encounter it too. Users tend to quickly find out about the entrance of Ntk Ransomware because it opens a full-screen ...

Zlappy.com

Zlappy.com is nothing more than yet another browser hijacker that you should remove immediately if you ever discover it active on your personal computer.

If that was not enough, you must also know that in some cases this devious program could act in a potentially harmful manner. To understand how it works, make sure to read ...

Search.searchyea.com

Search.searchyea.com is not your typical search provider. In fact, some will argue that it is no search provider at all. Although it presents a search dialog box, you are automatically redirected to a third-party search engine when you use it, instead of being presented with original search results delivered by the “provider” itself. Is this strange? Though it is not unusual, it is considered strange, and we believe that you should never install software that cannot offer beneficial services. Of course, you can also find quick-access links to popular email providers on the interface of the search tool, but ...

Motious.com

Motious.com is a dubious website sharing similarities with Viceice.com and Surfvox which were detected by researchers working at pcthreat.com some time ago. To be frank, specialists rarely call it a “dubious website.” Instead of being just an untrustworthy page, it is, undoubtedly, a browser hijacker. Certain pages receive this label because they are set up on all browsers without a user’s consent. Motious.com is no exception. It tends to show up on browsers out of the blue too. Users notice the changes applied, but they do not hurry to undo them because they believe that this website is going ...

Fadesoft Ransomware

If you ever happen to encounter an application named Fadesoft Ransomware, make sure to stay away from it at all costs. Just like any program that is classified as a ransomware, this one functions in a malicious manner. Upon intrusion, it can lock enormous amounts of your personal data without any notification or authorization. It is in every user's interest to avoid such malware because losing huge amounts of personal files could have disastrous outcomes, to say the least. To help users improve ...

Mediafiretrend.com

Mediafiretrend.com is a browser hijacker that poses as a beneficial tool. According to our research, this infection is promoted as an assistant that allegedly can help find content using mediafire.com. If you want to use the services of this file-sharing and storage site, use it directly because anything that comes in the middle is not authentic or trustworthy. Instead of actually offering you beneficial services, the hijacker will simply corrupt your homepage. Unsurprisingly, this threat targets the three most popular web browsers: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. If you use one or several of these browsers – ...

Searchbuw.ru

Searchbuw.ru is a browser hijacker which, according to researchers, has been developed to disseminate advertisements only. Specialists working at pcthreat.com have such an opinion about it because they have found that all Searchbuw.ru does is go to redirect users to third-party websites where all kinds of commercials are hosted on. This happens automatically when users open any of their browsers (this infection works on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox). Irritating redirections to websites with the commercial content will not only allow users to perform daily activities, e.g. surf the web freely, but might also result in a ...

Hermes Ransomware

Hermes Ransomware is a malicious computer infection that enters your system to bully you into spending your money for a decryption key. This decryption key may not even work if the program loses its connection with the command and control center (C&C). Our main concern right now is to remove Hermes Ransomware from your system as soon as possible and then proceed with restoring your files from an external backup. The most annoying feature of ransomware infections is that often it is impossible to revert the consequences even if you remove the program from your computer. But even so, you ...

Search.bookmyflight.co

We have observed a spike in browser hijacker releases with the biggest contributor to the increase being Polarity Technologies, a company that has been releasing browser hijackers steadily for the past few months. Its most recent release Search.bookmyflight.co is a browser hijacker that follows the typical formula, it replaces the homepage and new tab page addresses so that you would use it as a regular search engine, view promotional links and generate advertising revenue for its developers. There is nothing good about this search engine as it is malicious, so the sooner you remove it from your browser, the ...
