iSearch.bobrowser.com Hijacks Homepage and Search Engine


Many PC users started to see iSearch.bobrowser.com when they typed in queries. Only when the outcome is somehow different from that of Google.com did they notice that both homepage and search engine had been hijacked by the application called iSearch.bobrowser.com or BoBrowser Search. Most of PC users found that the hijacker could be easily to remove, but this is not the case when removing iSearch.bobrowser.com.

According to some victims, most installed anti-virus programs will not detect wow.com when hijacking and redirecting is putting on. Only MalwareBytes picks up some related PUP items. However, quarantining and removing those files will not drive away BoBrowser Search.

Is DealKeeper Virus?


Actually, DealKeeper is not that horrible as many people think. It is no more than an adware adopting BHO and JS techniques with an aim at promoting business. Security company would rather categorize it as a PUP and separate it from adware as it adopts rogue actions to stay on a target machine and redirect searches to promote sales.

Technically, it is not a virus at all, that’s why anti-virus programs are not able to remove it or stop it even after quarantining some suspicious files. Yet its unsolicited installation and re-image do arouse panic and concerns and you should be concerned since it is programmed loosely to simply promote products and intercept traffic. Bug can be found anytime to be exploited by infections concealed in the Internet.
