It is possible that you have visited suspicious file-sharing files lately and you installed a malicious software bundle if you notice Searchboro.com as your new homepage when you launch your browsers. This search website may look totally authentic and fine at first sight, which is the reason why they use a Google-resembling look, i.e., to mislead unsuspecting users. If you look closer, though, you might notice that there are no links to the usual legal documents, such as Privacy Policy and EULA. This should be quite suspicious. Furthermore, this search engine also hosts a spot for third-party ads, which could present to you potentially unreliable content. However, the most worrisome feature is definitely its search tool. We do not recommend that you use it at all because you may be exposed to modified search results containing unreliable ads and links. Based on its behavior, we have classified this threat as a browser hijacker. If you want to keep your computer safe, we suggest that you remove Searchboro.com right now. Please read on to learn more about this infection and the possible solutions to protect your computer from similar threats.

After careful research we have found that this browser hijacker is identical to Searchgle.com and Searchopa.com among others. This infection is mainly spreading in the following countries: Italy 21.4%, France 19.1%, and Mexico 18.6%. However, it does not mean that you cannot install it without your noticing it wherever you are on the globe. The most likely way for this infection to appear in your browsers is that you install it via freeware bundles. As of yet we have not found any official page that would offer this search engine as a choice coming with a promoted application. But we certainly cannot say categorically that there are no such applications on the web.

It is important for us to talk about freeware bundles because that is the most common method for criminals to spread their malicious software installer packages. You can download such a bundle when you visit shady websites containing a relatively high number of third-party ads. These sites include torrent, shareware, gaming, dating, and other webpages that host unreliable third-party ads. The worst thing is that a lot of times these advertisements do not even appear to be commercials. Instead, they try to fool you as a download or next-page button, an urgent plugin download or software update, and the like. If you are not familiar with these features when you are viewing a questionable page, you may click on infected content and drop a whole bunch of malware threats onto your computer. Since this can mean that your system may get infected with browser hijackers, fake alerts, adware applications, and potentially unwanted applications as well, you are looking at multiple system security issues. If you notice this search engine in your browsers, remember that this may not be the only threat. Thus, remove Searchboro.com as soon as possible and do not forget to scan your system with a proper online malware scanner to see how you are standing with regards to malware infections.

This browser hijacker tries to present itself to you as a customized Google search engine. By the look it can really fool you because you may think that you are actually using Google. However, this search page simply redirects all your search queries to a customized Google search results page (cse.google.com). This would not be a big problem, though, if this infection did not modify the results by injecting its promotions among the normal results. The truth is that this search website was developed for the sheer purpose of promoting affiliates by generating web traffic to their sites through advertisements and sponsored links. However, even criminals can pose as third parties since nobody ever reviews them or takes any responsibility. Therefore, you need to be very careful when you load any page really that contains third-party material. If you happen to click on a corrupt link among the search results provided by this browser hijacker, you could be taken to harmful websites operated by cyber criminals with the only purpose of trying to scam you out of your money. But you can also drop more infections onto your machine with a single click on the wrong content. We hope that it is clear now why we ask you to remove Searchboro.com if you want to go for safety.

We have found that the easiest way to eliminate this threat is to reset all your browsers. If you have no idea how to do this, please follow our instructions below. Unfortunately, by resetting your browsers you lose all your settings and extensions as well since the factory default will be set. If you do not want this, you may try to delete Searchboro.com by removing its extension if you find one. Alternatively, you can try to remove it from the homepage URL and new tab page settings. If you do not want to go through any more malware invasions, we recommend that you find a reliable anti-malware application and install it to safeguard your system at all times.
