- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Redisearch.com is a questionable search page that may show up in your main browsers and you may not even realize it. This is possible due to its design since it looks like an authentic search engine like Google. We have seen this style dozens of times in the past. It is sort of the hallmark of the notorious browser hijacker family called the ELEX family that include Lovesearchweb.com, Mystarting123.com, and MyLuckyPage123.com. Of course, most of these search pages may not even function anymore since these creators must shut down their servers from time to time. In any case, this browser hijacker is still active and may expose you to potentially risky third-party content, such as advertisements and sponsored links. Since this hijacker can show up on your system in a malicious software package, it is quite likely that your PC is under attack from a number of angles. If you would like to have your feeling of safety back, you should not hesitate to act and remove Redisearch.com from your computer.
When such a browser hijacker appears in your browsers as your new homepage, you should always suspect that you may have installed a suspicious free software bundle recently and this is how this malware infection may have slithered onto your system along with other threats. Such a bundle can carry a number of potentially unwanted programs as well as malware infections like browser hijackers, Trojans, adware programs, ransomware programs, fake warnings, keyloggers, and more. The problem is that it is not even that difficult to infect your PC with such a package.
Sometimes all it takes is a click of you mouse over the wrong third-party content and you may drop such a bundle right away. It can happen behind your back but you may have to install this package yourself. In any case, the installer is deceptive by design, which means, it is quite likely that you will install the whole content by default if you are an inexperienced user. And, this is exactly what the schemers behind such a bundle really want. If you do not want to end up with a malicious bundle again, you should forget about downloading free or cracked software from suspicious torrent and freeware pages, visiting shady websites related to online gaming, betting, dating, and porn. And, most of all, you need to stop clicking on content that can be related to third parties (banner and pop-up ads). But even if you watch your steps while surfing the web, it is possible that your computer was previously infiltrated by malware infections, such as adware programs and browser hijackers, so whenever you go online, you risk being exposed to unsafe third-party content. This is why it is advisable for you to scan your PC with a decent malware scanner after you delete Redisearch.com.
