How to Remove the Annoying Webssearches

2014-08-08

Recently,we have received feedback from many users who tell us that their browser homepage has been tampered with and changed to istart.webssearches.com,sweet-page.com, omiga-plus.com, etc. These sites claim that they will improve users' internet experience. At first, they look as professional as Google, but they alter user's habits and cause many inconveniences. Even more dangerous, they come with many unknown potential risks.

 

Analysis by Baidu Antivirus security experts has shown that unless users are computer experts, it is extremely difficult to finally get rid of istart.webssearches.com (you must perform registry and file operations such as repairing StartMenuInternet registry associated items, ending malicious processes, deleting malicious services, repairing associated shortcuts,restoring default browser homepage settings). Furthermore, we also discovered that istart.webssearches.com secretly installs many hidden modules, which can be controlled by commands issued from the cloud. This is a potential threat to users' computers (if users install optional software like isafe and desk365,their cookies, computer use habits, and other personal identifiable information is at risk to be stolen).


Also, Baidu Antivirus Security Center research has discovered: webssearches is propagated in clusters and has other associated common domain names such as:

sweet-page.com

isearch.omiga-plus.com

start.qone8.com

aartemis.com

dosearches.com

do-search.com

nationzoom.com

awesomehp.com

Portaldosites.com

omiga-plus.Com

.delta-homes.com


Once your browser is tampered with and your homepage is set to one of the above pages, it is like a time bomb has been planted in your computer. Cybercriminals will be able to easily compromise your privacy.
