We understand that as a browser hijacker is highly confusing especially is Bing is set as your default search engine. The point is that this intruder assumes Bing’s appearance, and it even has all the other MSN features, up to the Sign In button. What’s more, if you were to run a search query, you would be redirected through Bing, too. Thus, some users may think that this new search engine is just a part of the Bing family. Nevertheless, if you were to explore the site itself, you would see that some of the functions like the Settings tab, for example, do not work.

So how did this fake Bing landed on your computer? The most likely explanation would be software bundles. Software bundles refer to a phenomenon when a third-party installer carries more than one application. Such installers can be easily found on third-party file-sharing sites. It is very common to find a free media player, a video codec or a file converter being advertising as the main program. But when you download the file and launch the installation wizard, you will soon see that it offers you to install a few more applications, and might be one of them. That is, of course, assuming that you DO go through the setup steps instead of skipping them.

Unfortunately, quite a lot of users do skip those important steps, and they miss the important information that should be taken into consideration before installing any software. As a result, changes your default homepage on your default browser, and you automatically get exposed to the potentially corrupted content.

This browser hijacker shares its domain with yet another security threat via This domain can be traced back to a software publisher called “Beijing Caiyunshidai Technology Co.” The same publisher is responsible for having released the Yessearchers hijacker, so it is possible to claim that comes from a notorious group of computer infections, and its creators definitely know what they are doing.

Aside from being distributed in software bundles, this browser hijacker might also be included in the setup of Chromium browsers. Chromium browsers are based on the Chromium engine (obviously), and they are classified as potentially unwanted programs because they come with various undesirable features. Also, the hijacker might be installed on your computer accidentally when you get redirected to unfamiliar sites, so you need to employ safe web browsing habits if you want to avoid potential threats.

Either way, the point is that unless you get rid of, you will not be able to ensure your system’s safety. Please reset your browser settings to default and then run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner. It is important to find out whether you have more unwanted applications on your computer. Since this browser hijacker often travels in software packages, it is very likely that you have more undesirable programs installed. Usually, such programs are harmless, and they only take up your hard drive space, but there is no need to keep them. Not to mention that they could be exploited by malevolent third parties to promote their malicious sites and such.
