If you live in India, Turkey, Egypt, or Saudi Arabia, you need to be careful about the Chromesearch.club browser hijacker. It was recently discovered that the same hijacker could set itself or i-searchresults.com as the default search provider, and, depending on which one is used, show search results. According to recent research, the hijacker is likely to spread packaged with Google Chrome extensions, and so everyone should be cautious about installing new add-ons. Although it is unlikely that the hijacker would be installed silently, without the user’s notice, it could be attached to extensions, and the user might be forced to accept the search provider modifications. At the time of research, this threat was only taking over the search provider and only on Google Chrome. Whether or not that will change over time is unknown, but our research team will continue tracking the hijacker. For now, this is the information we have for you. Note that at the bottom of this report you can find a guide that shows how to delete Chromesearch.club or i-searchresults.com from Google Chrome.
It appears that Chromesearch.club is a clone of such well-known browser hijackers as Chromesearch.win and Chromesearch.today. They have identical interfaces, and it is possible that they were created by the same company. This is very suspicious because serious and reliable companies do not just create multiple copies of the same product or service. This indicates that the creator might be trying to access more systems and attract more users. At first sight, these search tools do not look suspicious or harmful at all. In fact, you are provided with links to plus.google.com/discover, google.com/gmail/about/#, images.google.com, and google.com/videohp via all of them. As you can see, all of these are Google services. This is why you might not be surprised when you find yourself redirected to google.com/search after entering search keywords into the available dialog box. Well, in fact, this could be the reason to remove Chromesearch.club from the browser because, ultimately, you are not gaining anything. If you use this hijacker, you will be taking an extra step to use Google Search, and, in the meantime, the hijacker will record information about you that could be shared with unknown third parties.
It does not take much to remove Chromesearch.club or i-searchresults.com because these are simple search tools that are represented via the default search provider. If they stand on their own, changing the provider to the desired one is enough. If an extension installed the search tool, the user might have to eliminate it to get rid of the hijacker. In both cases, you can follow the instructions below to clear your browser manually. If malware is somehow linked to this hijacker, it is recommended to install anti-malware software so that all malicious components would be eliminated automatically. The right software should eliminate Chromesearch.club automatically as well.
