Search.careerjobsearch.co is a questionable search website that features a toolbar and a panel of thumbnail links to give you easy access to career-related and popular websites as well. You should know that this new search website is the creation of the well-known Polarity Technologies Ltd. that has given us dozens of other risky search engines and browser hijackers, such as Search.tp-cmf.com, Search.testmyspeeds.co, and Search.searchfana.com. This malware infection has also been categorized as a browser hijacker as it can change your home page settings in your main browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome as well. This could mean frequent exposure to potentially unsafe third-party ads and links if you were to use this search website. Since this hijacker can infiltrate your system along with other malicious threats, it is quite likely that you have multiple system security issues right now. We recommend that you remove Search.careerjobsearch.co from your browsers and take care of all other possible threats as well to restore the previous security level of your virtual world.
This browser hijacker can appear in your browsers right after you click on an unreliable third-party ad or a corrupted link on a modified search results page probably displayed by a similar hijacker as this one. You may be offered an update or a supposedly missing plugin to download; however, when you click on such pop-up or banner ads, you can easily install such a hijacker even without your permission. Furthermore, it is also possible that you download a package of potentially unwanted programs and malware infections instead of just installing one single threat. This is why it is so important that you do not click on random third-party ads and fake notifications if you do not plan to infect your PC with a bundle of adware programs, browser hijackers, backdoors, Trojans, and fake alerts.
What inexperienced victims may not know is that most of the time it is actually possible to opt out and not to install certain browser setting changes or tools. For this, you need to read the licence agreement to be aware of the contents of the bundle and what changes it may make on your system. It is just as important that you cautiously read every single installation screen and select the custom option whenever possible. Unfortunately, these important things are usually ignored by users, who would rather rush the whole installation process and may end up with several threats on their system. If this may have happened to you too, we suggest that after you delete Search.careerjobsearch.co from your browsers, you run a trustworthy online malware scanner to identify all other threats as well.
This browser hijacker has the characteristic fake toolbar with the default search tool, local weather, and news buttons. The extra features this time include quick links to career-related websites, such as Indeed, Monster, and LinkedIn. There is also a panel of thumbnails right below the main search field, which you can hide or show as you wish. These thumbnails also take you to career sites as well as other popular pages, including Amazon, Facebook, and YouTube. We do not recommend though that you click on any of these as this hijacker might inject its own third-party ads into these pages and those may not be all trustworthy enough to click on safely. This browser hijacker may also gather data about your online activities to use them to target you with customized content on the search results pages. This infection uses Yahoo to provide you with search results; however these results could be filled with questionable promoted content (ads and links). We do not advise you to click on anything provided by this hijacker because you could harm your computer or even get scammed by crooks and lose money. This is why we believe that it is best for you to remove Search.careerjobsearch.co.
Our experience with this family and our tests show that this browser hijacker may only change your home page setting. Therefore, you can easily get rid of it if you restore your home page setting in all the affected browsers. Please follow our instructions below if you want to take care of this infection manually. Please do not forget about the rest of the threats that could be endangering your system as you are reading these lines. If you do not feel skilled enough to hunt them all down, we recommend that you start using a decent anti-malware program (e.g., SpyHunter) that can automatically detect and remove all known infections to protect your PC.
