After testing the program, it appeared to be that Searchboro.com is quite similar to the other browser hijackers, e.g. Searchopa.com, Myinfosearch.biz, and so on. That is why we believe that the software is spread the same way as other similar programs. For instance, the search engine could appear after installing applications from bundled setup files. Some installers that users download from torrent or other file-sharing web pages are bundled with potentially unwanted programs, adware, browser hijackers, etc. If you are certain that software’s publisher is a reputable company, you should get the installer from its official web page. Plus, it is also recommended to read the information on the setup wizard and reject bundled applications that you do not need.
As the hijacker gets installed, it should affect the default browser by replacing its search engine, homepage, or new tab page with Searchboro.com. The text on its search bar says “Google Custom search,” so it is not exactly google.com. There is a chance that the displayed results could contain third-party advertising, which would not appear while using the original Google site. Also, some of the ads could be shown below the search bar. If you encounter such content, it would be safer not to interact with it. Clicking these ads could result in redirection to third-party web pages, and some of them might be malicious. For example, a site may try to gather your sensitive data, promote suspicious software or in worst case scenario infect the system with malware.
If you do not want to wait till something bad happens, you should get rid of Searchboro.com. The browser hijacker can be eliminated both manually and automatically. To erase it manually the user would need to reset his hijacked browser. If you never did it before, you may want to follow the instructions below this article. On the other hand, if you are willing to install a security tool, it could remove the application automatically. This option might be better for the system too since the antimalware tool could scan it and detect other suspicious software. Therefore, you would not only delete Searchboro.com but also clean the computer from other possible threats.
