    What is IglobalSearch.com:

    Threat Classification: Browser Hijacker

    IglobalSearch.com is a fake, bogus and deceptive search website, that comes usually bundled with some other freeware software products, downloaded from the Internet and is usually hidden in the Advanced or Custom section of the software bundle installer. Even though, that the IglobalSearch.com tries to look just like any regular internet search engine, our researchers have classified it as a dangerous Browser Hijacker and/or Search Redirect, designed with a single purpose 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 came to the conclusion, that IglobalSearch.com is a dangerous browser hijacker/search redirector, capable of modifying web browser settings without users’ consent or other permission. Furthermore, the IglobalSearch.com browser hijacker is distributed mainly via the pay-per-install method, that is a common practise for some suspicious software bundles, hosted on malicious or even dangerous websites. The software bundles are usually installed, because of some popular freeware product, but along with it, on the victim’s computer are coming some additional installs – adware, spyware or fake antivirus and/or optimization tools, often installed using silent or stealth installation method (because they are hidden in the express or custom section of the software bundle installer). Our security experts strongly recommends you to avoid any search results or suggestions by IglobalSearch.com, because these are compromised and are filled with SPAM, suspicious software bundles or other 3rd party ads. If your computer is infected by the IglobalSearch.com, your web browser will start using IglobalSearch.com as your homepage, default search engine and default URL for your new tabs. Please keep in mind – all your search results are now compromised and your browsing habits are closely monitored and some of your private browsing data is collected by the developers/owners of these suspicious software products or sites. We recommend you to remove IglobalSearch.com as soon as possible, by performing a full system scan using the award-winning anti-malware suite called SpyHunter 4. IglobalSearch.com hijacker works with all the popular web browsers like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
