Our researchers suggest that this is just the beginning of an entirely new family of browser hijackers. We cannot stress enough that Allinsearch.com is not a search engine. Here is a quote found on this hijacker’s website. “All in Search are firmly positioned as global leaders in search engine marketing and web traffic generation. Founded on the vision that no goal is too ambitious, All in Search has evolved into a leading global provider of search-based advertising to publishers globally.” So the only reason why this hijacker even exists is to promote third-party content by deceptively including it in its search results. Obviously, only this hijacker’s developers and clients benefit from this. You on the other hand have the inconvenience of dodging potentially malicious websites.Allinsearch.com screenshot
