Wisersearch.com is a browser hijacker that is often bundled with random installers and video players. It means that if you download free software from a non-official website there is always a high chance that the application you are downloading will be bundled with the likes of Wisersearch.com. Therefore, to make sure that you install ONLY the software you need or want, you have to be extremely attentive during the installation process; otherwise you will have to remove Wisersearch.com and other similar potentially unwanted applications from your computer in no time.
Some users may not even consider Wisersearch.com a potentially dangerous website, because it looks like a genuine search provider. However, when this web page is set as your default search engine, you may experience constant redirections to associated websites, as well as exposure to commercial content that is being displayed in order to generate financial revenue.
What is more, Wisersearch.com could be responsible for flooding you with pop-up advertisements that display third party content. Consequently, since this browser hijacker is not responsible for whatever third party content is displayed in its pop-up ads, you may even get exposed to corrupted links that lead to dangerous websites. It all may sound a little bit too far-fetched, but the truth is that such scenario is possible and it WILL happen if you do not take your computer security seriously.
So how to know whether you are facing a risk of a malware infection? For one, if your home page is set for Wisersearch.com that is already a sign that something is definitely out of place. Next, you need to look for potentially unwanted programs that might be installed on your computer. Wisersearch.com is similar to native-search.com browser hijacker, so there is a high chance that it is also related to FTdownloader application.
