Today's article is devoted to a program called, which redirects the user to a site of the same name. Although in its aims and methods of penetration this hijacker is no different from the rest, it has an unusual structure, allowing it to freely penetrate to the computers and to stay there, despite the efforts of anti-virus programs. belongs to the type of adware that alters the properties of browser shortcuts on the user's computer. When shortcuts are changed, every time you open the browser opens the site In fact, this site becomes the home page of the victims without their will. Redirect affects all the most popular browsers such as Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera and many other less known ones. In addition to changes in the properties of shortcuts, when infecting the Chrome browser, the virus installs an application called Easychrome, spamming advertising in the search, and when you open new tabs.

The main functional difference which we mentioned above, is that has no software component. Typically, adware programs such as browser hijackers have a main website, and a program on a victim's computer, which displays advertisements, modifies browser settings and prevents them from changing. However, in this case there is no program. On the computer gets only one script that modifies the configuration of WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) so as to infect the browser shortcuts. If there is no malware, the antivirus software cannot recognize the threat. At this point even the best antivirus software detects the infected shortcuts and removes them without defusing the cause. We hope that in the near future AV programs will be able to change the WMI antivirus settings, and until then you will have to deal with it manually.

Removing can be divided into three stages: the replacement of labels, deleting malicious extension from the browser (in the case of Google Chrome), and a full scan of your computer. The first two steps can be done both manually and with the help of anti-virus software. However, the third stage will be difficult to perform manually because malware can hide very well, and you cannot find it, looking through all the folders on your computer. In addition, the fact that penetrated the computer says that the security has been previously weakened by some other virus, which should be removed immediately as long as the situation has not deteriorated further.
