- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Search.searchjmt.com may appear in your main browsers as your new homepage but you may not even recall setting it. This browser hijacker can modify your browser settings without your knowledge after sneaking onto your system under questionable circumstances. In fact, this is not a new threat; we have seen dozens of similar and identical search pages created by Polarity Technologies Ltd., such as Search.searchedd.com and Search.searchgbv.com. This new search page offers you quick access to travel-related websites and popular websites as well. However, we have found that the third-party ads this browser hijacker may display through these promoted sites or through the modified search results could be potentially unreliable. In other words, you could harm your system security if you were to engage with content offered by this hijacker. This is why we think that the best thing to do is remove Search.searchjmt.com from your computer as soon as possible.
You may wonder how this browser hijacker managed to crawl onto your system without your noticing it. Well, the truth is, schemers can use deceptive methods to distribute such malware infections. One of these is called bundling. It is a nasty way to infect people because if you are not cautious enough while installing such a software package, you may infect your computer with several threats. Such a bundle can carry potentially unwanted programs as well as malicious software installers like adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, fake alerts, and more. It is quite easy to drop such a package onto your system if you land on an unfamiliar suspicious torrent or freeware site like filewin.com and malavida.es. These site are filled with annoying and potentially harmful third-party advertisments and they may also run malicious scripts in the background. One click on the wrong content or the download button can drop a malicious bundle. The same can happen when you click on unsafe third-party ads on other suspicious pages or when these are displayed by malware infections hiding on your system. This is why we advise you to run a reliable online malware scanner after you manage to delete Search.searchjmt.com from your browsers.
This search page is totally useless in your browsers and may easily pose a threat to your system security. It provides you with a fake toolbar just like all other Polarity search pages. You can find the usual local weather and news links on this toolbar as well as traveling-related third-party websites like car rental services. Please note that you can always bookmark any page you would like to visit frequently. You do not need to use such an unreliable featured search page to do so. In fact, this browser hijacker can collect information about your browsing habits and use this to target you with customized third-party advertising through modified Yahoo search results. However, when you find yourself on a new tab with Yahoo results, you may not question the reliability of the contents. But when you click on a sponsored link or a third-party, and it comes from an unreliable source, you can find yourself dropping malware threats in the background or landing on malicious websites. This is why we think that you should remove Search.searchjmt.com right away.
Finally, we are here with the solution. You can choose to follow our guide below this report if you do not know how to reset your browsers. You can try to simply remove the related browser extension if you find any, but we believe it is more efficient if you go for the reset even if this means losing your preferred settings and installed extensions. Remember that your computer could be home for several other potential and malicious threats. You cannot leave them unaddressed because you could be exposed to malicious web content every time you go online. We suggest that you install a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter, if you prefer automatic threat detection and removal.
