Search.results-hub.com is a search engine that is definitely not good news if it suddenly appears in your browser as your new home page and default search engine. Since this mysterious appearance most likely takes place without your permission, we have labeled it as a browser hijacker. The act of hijacking browsers is an illegal move that is an actual breach of your privacy. You should not take this lightly, and we think that this should be enough for you to want to remove Search.results-hub.com right away. There are a couple of more suspicious things around this hijacker that makes it unwanted on your computer. Please read on to find out more about this infection and how you can secure your PC.
Mostly Google Chrome users complain about this browser hijacker, but that does not mean that it cannot affect the other major browsers, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Search.results-hub.com is a search engine that does not even generate its own results; it simply redirects your search to a Yahoo.com search results page. That is how most of the suspicious search engines work that are set by browser hijackers: They use redirection to third-party search engines. However, that makes this one totally redundant as you may as well use Yahoo.com or other reputable search providers, such as Google.com and Bing.

Speaking of which, it is also worth mentioning that this hijacker can collect personally identifiable information about you, which may be misused if it gets into the wrong hands. Therefore, we suggest that you remove Search.results-hub.com ASAP.
