If Websearch.oversearch.info suddenly becomes your home page address without any warning, it does not mean that you can use this search engine at ease. It actually may seem that an absolutely safe search provider has been set as your default search engine, but if your browser settings get modified without your permission, it means you have been infected with a browser hijacker. Consequently, Websearch.oversearch.info is part of a browser hijacker infection and it cannot be allowed to stay on your PC. Therefore, remove Websearch.oversearch.info immediately and then make sure that your system is protected from similar threats.

This browser hijacker comes from the same group as Websearch.just-browse.info, Websearch.searchiseasy.info and other similar infections. They do not have their own search engine, so they make use of localmoxie.com as their default search provider. Therefore, were you to carry out a search via Websearch.oversearch.info, you would see that all of your queries are redirected via localmoxie.com. This website is also related to potentially unwanted programs and intrusive advertisements, so it would not be a good idea to trust either Websearch.oversearch.info or localmoxie.com.

What is more, when Websearch.oversearch.info is set as your home page, you will notice a lot of flash advertisements on the site itself, and when you browse the Internet. These advertisements are generated and delivered via ad.extendmedia.com advertising platform. It also means that Websearch.oversearch.info uses cookies to collect information on your web browsing habits so that later on it would be able to direct a relevant string of commercial advertisements at you – thus it would encourage you to click these ads even more.

Clicking on pop-up and other advertisements generates money for third parties, because such ads are often part of pay-per-click system. In the worst case scenario, you might also be infected with malware, because malicious third parties might as well embed their own content into commercial advertisements as well. That happens due to extensively lax privacy policy employed by Websearch.oversearch.info.

Although a serious malware infection is not a 100% outcome of a browser hijacker infection, you cannot take any risks. Reset your browser settings and then run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner to determine which files and programs you need to delete from your computer. Acquire a powerful antimalware program to remove Websearch.oversearch.info automatically and then safeguard you the PC against similar infections.
