- Hijacks homepage
- Installs itself without permissions
Search.moviecorner.com by Findinfo Ltd. is a browser hijacker that might be able to replace the corrupted browser’s homepage. The good news is that you will find this hijacker as soon as you launch your browser, and that is very important if it manages to slither in without your permission. Sure, this threat cannot spread on its own, and an unreliable third-party installer might be responsible for its entrance. Unfortunately, if a malicious installer has helped the hijacker to slither into your operating system, there is a great possibility that other threats have been installed as well. This is the first thing you need to check because much worse infections might have slithered into your PC along with the hijacker. If they have, your priority might be to delete these other infections. Obviously, you should not forget about the removal of Search.moviecorner.com. If you are not sure what the reasons are for potentially eliminating this suspicious hijacker, you need to read this report.
The interface of Search.moviecorner.com looks professional, and that is the strength of this browser hijacker. If it looked funny, you would become suspicious and, most likely, delete it without much delay. However, when the interface looks normal, you might be tricked into thinking that the hijacker itself is trustworthy. The creator of Search.moviecorner.com has employed another element to make you trust their products, and that is the logo of Google. The search dialog box is in the center of the interface, and the “enhanced by Google” logo is attached on its right. Considering that Google Search is the most popular search engine in the world, it is not surprising why Findinfo Ltd. has chosen to use it to deliver search results. That, however, does not mean that you should trust these results. On the contrary, you should not use the search tool at all because of the risk of facing unreliable links. The hijacker could display the same links that you would find on google.com, but it could add ads and malicious links into the mix, and this is the main reason why we are discussing the removal of this hijacker.
Have you clicked the easy-access links displayed on the home page of Search.moviecorner.com? These links are legitimate, and you are unlikely to be redirected to unfamiliar pages when trying to visit Gmail, Facebook, Wikipedia, Pinterest, Instagram, and other familiar websites. What about the links in the “Show/Hide” section? These links represent different movies, and, by clicking them, you enable direct steaming. According to our research, these movies are streamed directly from moviecorner.com servers, and, of course, this service is illegal. As you must already know, original works of authorship are protected by copyright laws, and any interaction with illegally distributed content could get you involved in illegal activity. This is a very good sign that Search.moviecorner.com is untrustworthy and, therefore, should be deleted from your browsers. It must also be taken into consideration that the hijacker can employ tracking cookies to spy on its victims, and, even if the information collected does not include personal details, this is still potentially risky. Unfortunately, it is likely that many users will not even think about this when they see an attractive interface enabling access to popular sites and free movies.
If we have convinced you to delete Search.moviecorner.com, you need to modify the homepage URL immediately. Of course, if more dangerous threats are active, deal with them first, or, better yet, install an anti-malware tool to have all malicious infections, including the hijacker, eliminated at the same time. If you decide to erase all existing threats manually, start with the ones that are most dangerous.
