- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Search.searchtsbn.com is a page you might find set as your new homepage on all your browsers (it is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome). At first, it does look like an ordinary search provider with a bar at the top containing quick-access buttons opening popular news websites and a search box in the middle, but specialists do not consider this page a trustworthy search tool. They have decided to call it a browser hijacker instead because users usually do not know anything about its appearance on their browsers, meaning that their browsers get hijacked. We know that Search.searchtsbn.com looks legitimate, but it does not mean that you should keep it set or use it to find the information on the web. Keep in mind that there are no trustworthy search providers that alter settings of users’ browsers without their knowledge. Luckily, the Search.searchtsbn.com browser hijacker is nothing like these harmful malicious applications, so you should be able to get rid of it quite easily, especially if you read this report first and then use the removal guide prepared by specialists working at pcthreat.com.
Search.searchtsbn.com is created on the same template as Search.yourmapscenter.com, Search.youremailnow.com, and Search.yourpackagesnow.com (these are all pages developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd.), so the browser hijacker we are talking about today should be distributed the same, according to our researchers. That is, it should also be spread bundled. They say that users should not download any applications from dubious P2P websites because they might end up with the browser hijacker or a more harmful threat. On top of that, they should not click on any random links they find somewhere on the web because they might initiate the download of untrustworthy software with the single click. It is not very likely that you will manage to protect your system from all harmful threats that will try to enter your system unnoticed, so we recommend having a security application installed and active on your computer as well. It does not mean that you can act carelessly even if you have security software enabled on the system.
You should use our manual removal guide to remove Search.searchtsbn.com manually if you have never deleted any browser hijacker in your life. Since you will have to perform all the removal steps yourself, it will take time to get rid of this infection, so if you cannot allow this for yourself, you should use an automated malware remover to undo the changes applied to your browsers. Double-check the scanner you are going to use because there are hundreds of scanners that are completely unreliable.
