Browser hijackers have various ways to enter your system. For example, when your home page is set for Websearch.wisesearch.info, it means that you have been infected with a browser hijacker that enters your system together with freeware and/or adware. Either way, it performs unsolicited browser modifications consequently exposing you to a number of security risks, and you cannot overlook that. Even if this webpage looks like a genuine search engine, you cannot trust it. Remove Websearch.wisesearch.info from your computer immediately and then run a full system scan to make sure that there are no other potentially unwanted programs on board.

Usually, fake search engines make use of other search providers for their searches which is why it is easy to tell them apart from real search providers. Previous infections from the same group, including websearch.oversearch.info, websearch.searchhere.info, websearch.greatresults.info and others have also used different search providers for their searches, so Websearch.wisesearch.info strikes as a more improved version of a browser hijacker.
It is also important to note that the even though the infection gets installed on your computer without your permission, it is very likely that you download the infected file yourself.

It also means that you can download the file that sets Websearch.wisesearch.info as your default home page when you install freeware downloaded from third party websites. If you intend to install a new program on your computer, make sure that you download from an official source, otherwise it is very likely that the program will be bundled with additional (unnecessary) freeware).
Websearch.wisesearch.info does to paralyze your system by itself. Since it is a browser hijacker, it may function as a tool for malware distribution, especially considering the fact that it displays third party advertisements on its home page.
