You might have been duped into thinking that Search.mediatabtv.online is a genuine and trustworthy search provider. Our researchers claim that it is not as innocent as it might appear to be at first. As a matter of fact, this search tool could turn out to be extremely untrustworthy and even malicious, and the worst thing is that confirming anything is very difficult at this stage. The search tool – which we identify as a browser hijacker – appears to be unfinished, and it is unknown whether that is done on purpose or not. Right now, there is no official page representing it, there is no information about its creator, and the links to terms of use and privacy policy statements that are represented via the home page do not work. Overall this hijacker is way too unpredictable, and that is a reason to remove it. If you are not sure what you need to do to delete Search.mediatabtv.online, keep reading.

The users of Chrome, Firefox, and other popular web browsers do not install hijackers after researching them. No, they let them in because they are careless and because they do not do their research in the first place. Of course, if the hijacker has corrupted your web browser without your notice, it might be hard to understand where you have made the mistake, but Search.mediatabtv.online is unlikely to attack silently. Most likely, this hijacker came bundled with an attractive extension or application, and you were tricked into believing that it was useful and harmless. Judging by the domain name, the hijacker might have been promoted as a tool that could make it easier to stream videos or TV content. All in all, whether or not the hijacker corrupted your browser silently, it is likely that other suspicious and potentially malicious programs or extensions exist. If they do, you want to delete them as soon as possible. Click the link below to download a free malware scanner that will determine if you need to remove malicious threats.

Although Search.mediatabtv.online has a very simple interface – there are no buttons, links, or tabs – you should not consider it to be harmless because the harm could be caused silently. The search tool, for example, does not look malicious at all, and some users might not realize that it is not trustworthy even when they use it. Just like many recently discovered hijackers, Search.mediatabtv.online uses Yahoo Search to offer search results. If the user is familiar with this search engine, they might choose to believe that the hijacker is reliable. Unfortunately, the results could be modified, and it might be hard to spot the sponsored content and ads when they are mixed in with regular results. Is it dangerous to click on the added links? It could be dangerous if they were leading to scams and malware installers, and since there is no information from the creator of the hijacker, we cannot know if they are working with reliable parties. Most likely, they are not. Another unknown in this equation is the activity of data trackers. Most search tools track browsing history and are capable of tracking other kinds of information. Some can track personal data. Clearly, this hijacker cannot be trusted.

We offer a guide that explains how you can change homepage and search provider on the most popular web browsers. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that this will work in every case because other threats are likely to be attached to the suspicious Search.mediatabtv.online. If the threat is bundled with other infections, you might need to delete them to get rid of the hijacker. Of course, you need not to threat if manual removal is too complicated because it is best for anyone dealing with the removal of Search.mediatabtv.online to install an anti-malware program. It will scan the system and automatically delete every single malicious component. And the best part, you will not need to worry about the security of your operating system or the browsers in the future because of the “anti-malware” property. Hopefully, you have found answers to your questions in this report, and you know what to do. If you are feeling lost, write to us using the comments section below.
