Search.searcheasywa.com is a questionable featured search page that can appear in your browsers as your new homepage. We have found that this malware infection is indeed a browser hijacker that comes from the ever-growing Polarity Technologies team, who are also responsible for dozens of other potentially unwanted programs as well as browser hijackers like Search.searchjmt.com and Search.searchidd.com. If you find this hijacker in your browsers, it is quite likely that you have installed a free program recently. This infection is known to be spread via suspicious file-sharing websites and other shady methods. Therefore, it is quite possible that you will find all kinds of other malware threats on your system on top of this one. This is why we recommend that you remove Search.searcheasywa.com from your computer as soon as possible.
We have not found any official pages that would promote this search page as a standalone browser extension, not even the Chrome web store. This is rather suspicious and the first sign that you are dealing with a fishy search site. What is really bad about this browser hijacker is that it can be found in freeware bundles. In other words, if your system is infected with this threat, chances are you will find other malware infections on board, too. Such a bundle can carry several threats like potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers, adware programs, ransomware programs, Trojans, and so on. If you land on an unfamiliar suspicious file-sharing page (torrent or freeware), it is quite likely that you will download an infectious bundle instead of a standalone file. It is even worse when you try to download a cracked program because you can be sure that you will install all kinds of threats once you run the .exe file. You should always download software and updates from official sites to avoid such infections. It is also important that you do not click on random third-party advertisements on suspicious websites because you can easily drop such a package, too. We advise you to be wise and run a reliable online malware scanner right after you delete Search.searcheasywa.com from your browsers.
This is a typical Polarity search page with the fake toolbar at the top. This toolbar contains a couple of usual tools like the search tool on the left, the News, and the Local Weather quick links. Speaking of which, you should be careful with these pages because they may display several questionable third-party ads you do not want to click on. This particular browser hijacker also has a few more quick links leading to other weather-related third-party sites like weather.gov and pollen.com. But you can also find a couple of thumbnail links below the main search box. Unfortunately, you cannot trust this search engine because it forwards all your keywords to its web server and then, to a Yahoo search results page. This also means that this hijacker can modify those results to insert promoted content like questionable third-party ads and links, which can be customized since this infection may collect information about you to do so. If you click on unreliable content on this modified search results page, you may drop further infections or find yourself in the center of an online scam on a malicious website. This is why we believe that it is best for you to remove Search.searcheasywa.com from your computer.
The best solution to get rid of all browser-related threats in one go is to reset all your infected browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer as well.
