Mans-find.org is a browser hijacker that, according to our research team, was created in Russia. At the moment, this threat is mainly spread across Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Bangladesh, Belarus, and Armenia, but the users in other countries could be affected by it as well. If it has modified the homepage of your web browser without your permission, you should have no reservations about deleting it. But what if you installed it yourself? If that is the case, you still need to remove Mans-find.org, and there are several reasons for that. After analyzing this suspicious infection in our internal lab, we have come to a conclusion that the hijacker is way too unpredictable and suspicious for you to trust, and it is important to get rid of it as soon as possible. To learn more about the activity of the threat and its elimination, please keep reading this report.
There are many ways that Mans-find.org can enter your operating system. While the official installer does not exist, this hijacker could be downloaded by clandestine Trojans active on your PC, or it could be attached to a software bundle allegedly promoting more attractive programs. The worst part is that this hijacker might be introduced to you as something else. Our researchers claim that a redirector with a different name could be offered to you, and it could be responsible for redirecting to Mans-find.org as soon as the browser is launched. Also, you must keep in mind that other suspicious pieces of software could come bundled with this threat, including Amigo browser, Kometa browser, Torrent Search, or Searchgo. Therefore, if you discover the hijacker, immediately scan your operating system because it is likely that you are dealing with many other threats that also require removal.
According to our research, Mans-find.org is very similar to Newcityinworld.ru, Workno.ru, Smartinf.ru, and other browser hijackers that we advise deleting, and it is possible that they were created by the same malicious developer. It is most likely that these hijackers were created to record sensitive data and, possibly, leak it to unreliable parties. Unfortunately, it uses the Google search engine to deliver results when you enter keywords into the Mans-find.org search dialog box, which makes this hijacker appear less suspicious. Do you think that the results are authentic? They could be modified, and the additional sponsored links and ads could be malicious, which, of course, is an important reason to erase the hijacker from your operating system immediately. After all, this hijacker does not offer beneficial services besides the redirecting to Google Search. Do you want to keep this threat installed just because it shows news articles on the homepage of your web browser? You can find news on legitimate sites, and you definitely should not rely on a hijacker to provide you with reliable information.
Mans-find.org is a very suspicious hijacker, and we are still analyzing it to understand it fully. If we find anything else worth mentioning, we will update this report, but our recommendation to delete it will not change. The removal guide below shows how to eliminate this hijacker from your Windows operating system and web browsers manually. Of course, if Trojans are active, isn’t it better to install an automated malware remover right away? We think it is, and we strongly recommend installing this software as soon as possible. If you stick with manual removal, do not forget to perform a full system scan and erase the detected threats immediately.
