If your browser’s homepage was changed to Search.search1000tr.com without your knowledge or approval, then you should know that your browser was infected with a browser hijacker, a malicious search engine dedicated to replacing homepages to make people use it. If this has happened to you, then you should remove this malicious search engine because it is not a browser hijacker without reason. Its developers have configured it to redirect your entered search queries to a third-party search engine that features ad-supported search results. Hence, this search engine is unreliable as it can potentially subject you to malicious content.
You can get Search.search1000tr.com on your PC through bundled software installers that inject it into your browser if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer. It replaces the homepage addresses of the said browsers to make you use it to search the web. While you can use Search.search1000tr.com as a regular search engine, it will not provide you with a quality service as it delivers ad-supported search results. This hijacker’s top priority is promotional links that bring its developers ad revenue. Truth be told, there is no telling what you may encounter as a result of using this hijacker. Therefore, we advise you against using it.
Search.search1000tr.com was made by a company that calls itself Polarity Technologies. This company is based in Cyprus, and it has been releasing similar hijackers for quite some time. Therefore, this new hijacker is just another release and a small part of a bigger web monetization campaign. Polarity Technologies have also recently released Search.searchtg.com, Searchutorrm.com, and Search.searchbtorr.com. It will continue to make new hijacker to replace the older ones that are phased out over time and removed by anti-malware programs.
As far as distribution methods are concerned, we found that Search.search1000tr.com is disseminated using malicious software installers that inject it into your browser secretly. The installers are configured to do that on purpose because most users would deselect its installation if given a choice. This hijacker can come bundled with legitimate programs that act as the bait. Nevertheless, they can also come bundled with potentially unwanted programs, adware, and so on.
Given that Search.search1000tr.com can enter your PC secretly, it is a browser hijacker that is set to replace your browser’s homepage in an effort to generate ad revenue from the promotional links featured in its search results. This malicious search engine can but your computer’s security in jeopardy. Therefore, we think it is wise to remove it, and if you want to do that, then please see the instructions provided below.
