If you are vigilant, you should expect this search tool to represent the search results using the Yahoo search engine because the “Yahoo! France” logo is displayed right below the search dialog box.

After all, Yahoo! is also available in French, just like the suspicious search tool that we are discussing in this report. Did you have no control over its entrance?

Hopefully, malware does not exist on your operating system, and you can fully focus on the suspicious As we have already discussed, the interface of this browser hijacker is not suspicious. You have a search dialog box that accepts your search keywords and finds relevant information based on the search tool you use (Web, Images, Vidéos, or Actualités). When the search results are shown, you see the same results that you would be introduced to if you used Yahoo Search.

Do you know if you will maintain virtual security if you interact with these advertisements?

In non-techie terms:

Do not treat as a reliable search tool because it is not reliable. It employs Yahoo Search to deliver you relevant search results; however, it might add sponsored links/advertisements as well, and you do not want that because they could be unreliable. Overall, the search tool is not entirely useless, but it certainly is not better than Yahoo Search, and so we do not recommend using it much longer. You can reset your browsers to get rid of this hijacker, or you can use an anti-malware tool. Choose the latter option if other threats are active and if your operating system requires better protection.
