Do you know what Search.careerjobsearch.co is?
Search.careerjobsearch.co is yet another useless featured search website from Polarity Technologies Ltd. to promote potentially questionable third parties. This search engine page is very similar to all previous ones created by this company, including Search.htextfrompc.co and Search.testmyspeeds.co. Although this hijacker may appear to be innocent to inexperienced users, we are here to warn you of the possible risks. This malware infection can show you manipulated search results that could thus contain possibly unsafe third-party ads and links as well. In other words, engaging with any search result might result in infecting your computer with further threats or redirections to malicious websites. All in all, our researchers say that it is not safe to keep this browser hijacker in your browsers as it counts as a potential system security threat. Thus, we recommend that you remove Search.careerjobsearch.co from your browsers as soon as possible.
One of the most likely ways for you to install this hijacker is to download free programs off of shady torrent and freeware sites, including malavida.es and descargar.es. These pages often promote malicious software packages that may bundle a number of potentially unwanted applications and malware threats like adware programs, Trojans, fake warnings, ransomware programs, and browser hijackers. You could also be offered a software update or download presented by a pop-up or banner ad. Although this ad may seem authentic to unsuspecting users, you should know that most of the time these are malicious and drop malware infections like this browser hijacker behind your back. This is why it pays to stay away from suspicious websites with questionable third-party ads.
But you could also be exposed to such unsafe content when your computer is infected with adware programs, browser hijackers, or even certain potentially unwanted applications. These infections can usually collect information about you to show you customized advertising and thus deceive you and trick you into clicking, which obviously also may be a source of money (pay-per-click system) for the creators. Nevertheless, once you click, you could drop a full bundle of malicious threats or get redirected to a malicious page that could do the same or even scam you. All in all, we believe that it is essential that you run a full system malware scan right after you delete Search.careerjobsearch.co from your computer.Search.careerjobsearch.co screenshot

This browser hijacker seems exactly the same as its predecessors from the same family. However, it does offer you a bit different features apart from the default ones (search tool, news link, and local weather link). This particular search website features quick access to websites associated with career, including Monster and LinkedIn. Please note that visiting any third-party website through this browser hijacker could be risky since it might be able to inject potentially unreliable third-party ads.
