Do you know what Search.easysportsaccess.com is?
It is possible to find Search.easysportsaccess.com in your browsers when your computer is infected with a browser hijacker. This malware promotes this search engine by setting it as your new home page URL and default search engine as well. Some hijackers can even modify your new tab page as well. If you do not remember letting this search engine make changes to your browsers, it can only mean one thing: You have downloaded and installed an infected, malicious bundle.

Our researchers have found that this search engine seems identical to Search.myshoppingxp.com and Search.mydailyversexp.com among others. The only difference between the dozens of clones is, apparently, the offered quick links you will find on a fake toolbar. These buttons keep changing according to the main theme of the given search engine. Search.easysportsaccess.com is obviously about providing you easy access to third-party websites that has something to do with sports. Thus, you can find links associated with football, baseball, auto racing, golf, and the like. However, we do not recommend that you click on any of those links or use the search tool. In other words, we believe that using any of the third-party services offered by this browser hijacker might end badly for you since you might be exposed to unreliable web content.Search.easysportsaccess.com screenshot

As a matter of fact, the developers do not take any responsibility for the content you may be shown or the data gathering these third-party sites may conduct. The affiliated third parties are also not reviewed, which could mean that you may be targeted by cyber criminals.

That is why you should not use it for web search. You will never be sure that the link or ad you click on will lead you to a legitimate site or a malicious one. You should delete Search.easysportsaccess.com before you start an avalanche of malware infections or get scammed in a more serious way by criminals.

If you click on a fake button, it could be the reason why your computer will be infected with a whole bunch of malware threats.

This infection is not easy to eliminate because the uninstaller will only take care of the Internet Explorer setting changes.
