Mysearchdial Redirects, Remove Start.MySearchDial from Mac OS X and Windows

Why Mysearchdial Replaces Homepage?


Mysearchdial(start.mysearchdial.com) is called browser hijacker other than virus due to two reasons:
  1. It was created by commercial operators to intercept traffic and direct the traffic to their products for promotional sales other than mechanical damage.
  2. Mysearchdial is not programmed with typical virus items; instead, it is adopting BHO technique and JS technique.
It all makes sense now. Staying on a target machine and replacing homepage is a way to promote more business.

Is Mysearchdial Dangerous?


Now that mysearchdial is not a virus, and the only problem seem to be caused by it is redirect. So should targets be concerned? The answer cannot be more positive. If one equipped with certain level of computer knowledge navigates to C:\Windows\System32 will find there are a lot more unfamiliar and suspicious .dll, .exe and .dat files.
  1. One should be informed that .dll file is created to help launch mysearchdial automatically when browser works; such file also takes the responsibility of updating drivers, ActiveX; thus it can be inferred that mysearchdial manages to update data and redirect targets to more undesirable sites and to overwrite driver information to incur malfunctions such as error issue.
  2. Random overwriting and modifications on browser settings would bring vulnerability into being, which can result in more attacks by virus concealed in the Internet.
  3. The download of .dll, .exe and .dat files is achieved by BHO technique; once such technique is taken advantage by other virus, other virulent items can be downloaded without authorization and interference. 
Provided that vulnerability is detected by other destructive virus, JS technique will also be utilized to record log-in credentials and other valuable information by reading the scripts; it will definitely lead to the consequence where accounts are hacked to commit misdeeds without knowledge.

Though start.mysearchdial is not a virus, it is recommended to implement removal as soon as possible to prevent potential infections. Below is the self-help instruction trawled through by specialized technician to help. If you have any question, please feel free to live chat with technicians.
