Do you know what Eversearches.com is?
Although Eversearches.com is a questionable search engine that has been down for some time now, it is still possible that you infect your system with the browser hijacker that promotes it. Therefore, our researchers think that it is important to share with you what might happen if this potentially unreliable search page actually works as well as the risks its presence can hold for you. Since it is quite possible that this browser hijacker does not enter your computer all alone, there may be other challenges present, too that may put your virtual security at risk. That is why we believe that you should remove Eversearches.com and detect all other possible threat sources as well. Leaving any potentially risky applications on your system could cause further security-related issues and expose you and your computer to cyber criminals.
Our researchers have found that this browser hijacker is indeed a new member of the notorious ELEX family that includes Amisites.com, Iminentsearch.com, and WorldSearchPro.com among dozens of others. The main distribution method to spread these useless and potentially harmful search pages on the web is called software bundling. This hijacker also uses malicious bundles to travel over the Internet. However, since such a bundle can contain several malware infections, it is obvious that installing one can seriously make your system vulnerable. Therefore, it is important to understand how you can infect your computer with such a software package.
There are two main possibilities for you to let a bundle onto your computer but both involve unreliable third-party ads. The only difference is the source of these advertisements. First, you can be presented with harmful third-party banner and pop-up ads if your computer has been infected with ad-supported programs. Second, you can also find such ads if you visit suspicious gaming, pornography-related, torrent, and freeware websites. These websites are full of unsafe third-party ads. All you need to do is click on any one of these advertisements to drop an infectious package onto your machine. Therefore, we advise you to always use official and reputable websites for downloading files and programs. You should run a web search in fact before you set out to install anything to see if it is worth at all. If you let a whole bunch of infections onto your computer, it is not enough to delete Eversearches.com alone; you need to run a reliable malware scanner to identify all other potential risks as well.
Although right now this browser hijacker displays an Internal Server Error (Error 500) when you visit this promoted search page, it could be a sign of a temporary outage. We cannot confirm that this search page has stopped working and will never start up again. This is why it is important to know how it works. In fact, there is nothing special about this hijacker since it operates exactly the same way as most of its peers. The motivation behind its creation is obviously making money through ads and sponsored links. This hijacker can collect information about your browsing habits and use this to send targeted ads and links to your screen through the displayed search results. It is quite likely that Eversearches.com uses a redirection to a well-known search engine (Yahoo, Google, Bing) to provide you with search results; however, beware of clicking on these. Modified search results are always risky to click on because they may be a tool for criminals to trick you into visiting their malicious websites. Landing on such pages does not usually end well for inexperienced computer users. You may infect your computer with other malicious software installers while thinking that you are downloading important software updates or tools to fix an imminent system error. But you may also be scammed to reveal your banking details that could result in your losing money from your bank account. That is why we recommend that you remove Eversearches.com as soon as possible.
If you want to make sure that you eliminate Eversearches.com without any mess left on your computer, it is best to do it in two stages. First, locate and execute the uninstaller in Control Panel. Since it is possible that this uninstaller is missing or does not work properly, you should also reset your browsers as a second step. Please use our guide below if you are not familiar with these steps. If you want to really protect your computer from similar issues or worse malware attacks, we suggest that you employ a reputable malware removal tool, such as SpyHunter. But you can use any security software you find reliable. Beware of the rogue tools that are hiding on the web. Always make sure you know what you download.
