    What is Need4Search.com:

    Threat Classification: Browser Hijacker

    Need4Search.com or Need4Search virus (it is falsely classified as a virus by some computer users – it is more a browser hijacker) is a bogus and deceptive Internet search engine, that is usually installed together with some other riskware and even though, that some computer users may find it regular & legit, our malware research team performed multiple tests and a very thorough inspection, from which they draw the conclusion, that the Need4Search.com is a dangerous Browser Hijacker and/or Search Redirecting virus, designed & build with a single thought in mind – to make money for its developers/owners, by driving as much traffic as possible to certain websites, part of some affiliate programs or sponsored links. Our malware research team concluded that the Need4Search.com is a dangerous browser hijacker/search redirector, capable of modifying web browser settings without users consent or other permission. Furthermore, once the Need4Search.com browser hijacker gets active, it modifies the browser’s settings and windows settings, making the recovery nearly impossible. The Need4Search.com browser hijacker virus is distributed mainly by the pay-per-install software bundles, which are usually installed, because they claim to provide some other popular freeware product, but these software bundles are full of adware, spyware, fake antivirus and/or rogue optimization tools, which are often installed using silent or stealth installation method (they are hidden in the Express or Custom section of the software bundle installer). Our malware researchers & security experts strongly recommends you to avoid any search results or suggestions by Need4Search.com, because they are compromised and could easily modify your web browser to start using Need4Search.com as your homepage or start page, default search engine or as a default URL for all New Tabs.
