- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Search.yourtransitinfonow.com is a new questionable search website with a fake toolbar offering easy access to pages associated with traveling. Unfortunately, this featured search website can show up in your browsers uninvitedly and pose a threat to your virtual security. In fact, we have found that this is yet another useless browser hijacker from Polarity Technologies Ltd., which is also responsible for dozens of other threats like Search.searchlcll.com and Search.searchtpg.com. These hijackers are very similar to each other and at times even identical clones of each other the only difference being the URL address. This browser hijacker can affect your Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer browsers. This means a lot of surface for exposure to potentially unreliable third-party content. It is possible that you will be presented with modified search results that could contain risky third-party ads and links leading to malicious webpages. Thus, we recommend that you act now and remove Search.yourtransitinfonow.com from your computer.
When you find this browser hijacker active in your browsers, it is possible that you have clicked on a corrupt third-party advertisement or link, installed a freeware bundle, or your computer was already infected with malware that displayed the corrupt ad for you. As you can see, you need to be extra careful while surfing the web because you can easily infect your computer by simply clicking over the wrong content. If you click on an unsafe third-party banner or pop-up ad, a fake button, or other corrupt content, you may either directly install this hijacker in your browsers or open new tabs with malicious pages that may scam you to install it. There is also a chance that you will not only install this threat alone but a whole bundle of potential and malicious threats and this is why it will not be enough for you to delete Search.yourtransitinfonow.com alone.
You may also tend to download free video files and programs via suspicious torrent and freeware sites like descargar.es and filewon.com. But you should know that such P2P sites usually promote questionable (to say the least) software packages. This means that even when you think that you are downloading a standalone file, it is always a bundle indeed. This bundle may carry potentially unwanted programs and malware infections as well in addition to a possibly legitimate free program. As a matter of fact, this is how a lot of unsuspecting computer users infect their system with adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, ransomware programs, fake alerts, and more. We recommend that after you delete Search.yourtransitinfonow.com from your browsers, you use a reliable malware scanner to detect all other threats on your computer.
This new search page provides you with the usual fake toolbar and basic easy access links (News, Local Weather, Gmail, and Facebook) as well as third-party pages associated with traveling, including car rental services and bus services. Although these are mainly legitimate websites, they may display third-party advertisements that could be manipulated by this hijacker. But the worst thing is the search engine itself because it may show you manipulated search results on a Yahoo results page. Landing on a Yahoo page would obviously make you feel like you can trust what you see there. This is however a trick because this browser hijacker may inject unreliable third-party ads and sponsored links to promote affiliates and thus make money. However, clicking on such content may harm your computer and your bank account as well if you were to land on a scamming pages, for instance. This is why we believe that you should remove Search.yourtransitinfonow.com right away.
To eliminate this browser hijacker, it may be enough for you to reset the homepage setting in the affected browsers since this malware infection is mostly known to change that. Please use our instructions below for reference if you do not know how to do this. Remember that you cannot leave other possible threats on board either. You need to remove all of them manually or use an automated security tool you can trust, such as SpyHunter, to do this hard work for you. Having an anti-malware program installed would also give you the best protection for your PC against future threats.
