The creator of Searchvzcc.com has done a good job at making this browser hijacker appear to be harmless. The creator of this threat is Polarity Technologies Ltd., and this name has been mentioned in many of our articles before because it is also the creator of Search.searchwatchytsn.com, Search.searchbrs.com, and other infections. All hijackers from this family are capable of recording information that is considered to be personally identifiable. Furthermore, this information can be shared with parties that are not disclosed, and, unfortunately, that means that personal data could be at risk. Are you willing to take risks associated with the hijacker? You definitely should not, and our recommendation for you is to delete Searchvzcc.com immediately. If everything is clear to you, you can check out the instructions below. If you do not understand why the hijacker can be dangerous, and if you want to learn how to protect yourself from letting in other hijackers in the future, you should read the report first.
Let’s talk about the entrance of Searchvzcc.com first. Obviously, an official installer for this hijacker does not exist. When it comes to hijackers created by Polarity Technologies Ltd., we usually see an add-on that is specifically created to represent a specific hijacker. We do not get that with Searchvzcc.com. Is the add-on still in development? That could be the case, but it is more likely that the creator of this threat has decided to spread it in a different manner. The hijacker could be attached to more attractive programs to trick you into installing it without even knowing it. The bundled installer representing it could also represent it in a misleading manner to make you think that it is better than your set homepage website. Obviously, the installer spreading the hijacker cannot be reputable because reputable installers do not associate with pieces of software that are considered malicious. The distributor of this threat must be unreliable as well, and you might find it spread along with other threats that also require removal.
You already know that Searchvzcc.com can record and leak private data, and there really is not much to say about this, except that removing tracking cookies is highly recommended. But the hijacker’s ability to exploit Yahoo Search is something we should discuss in depth. Do you trust Yahoo Search? If you – like most users – trust it, you are likely to trust the search results shown by Searchvzcc.com as well. First of all, did you expect it to redirect you to search.yahoo.com? If you were not informed about this, that means that the hijacker is redirecting illegally, and that isn't something you can ignore even if you are familiar with the page you are routed to. Also, did you know that Searchvzcc.com exploits Yahoo Search? It might use it to display sponsored content, and you might end up interacting with it by accident. Overall, if you do not want your searches to be interrupted by ads, and you do not want suspicious parties recording private information, removing the hijacker is essential.
Hijackers are not to be underestimated. If you just ignore the suspicious Searchvzcc.com, the threats that are associated with it will not go away. These threats, as you already know, include the leaking of personal data and the introduction of advertisements as normal search results. If you agree with us that you need to remove Searchvzcc.com, here is what you can do. If you are leaning towards manual removal, the guide shown below will assist you greatly. Do not forget to erase the cookies! If you do not have time or the knowledge to erase all active threats – if multiple are found – using an anti-malware tool is a better idea.
