Games.onesearch.org is a search engine that can be set as your home page and default search engine if you keep the operating system unprotected and pay no attention to the online content you are provided with. Practice when the user's browsers are affected without permission or notice is considered browser hijacking, and the search engine set as the new search provider or home page is called browser hijacker.

Unsolicited changes on your browsers can be made after clicking on a malicious advertisement or when installing software acquired from a freeware sharing website.

Hence, keeping the operating system protected by powerful anti-malware is highly recommended.
