Do you know what Search.results-hub.com is?
Search.results-hub.com is a search provider that seems to be able to perform its main function – find the information associated with the keyword that a user enters into the search box. It might seem that Search.results-hub.com works as it should because it provides Yahoo! search results immediately; however, it still cannot be trusted completely. The main reason why we do not consider it a reliable search engine is the fact that it usually appears on browsers without a user’s permission. In other words, it makes changes without asking for permission. It seems that Search.results-hub.com is primarily aimed at Google Chrome users because there are many users’ complaints that it has appeared on the aforementioned browser. If you already see it, we suggest that you remove Search.results-hub.com browser hijacker as soon as possible. In the meantime, you should not use it to search for the information because you might encounter malware and thus cause harm to your system.
Even though Search.results-hub.com is powered by Yahoo!, our specialists have still noticed that you might be provided with ads and sponsored links. They will be related with the keyword you enter. It is possible to recognize those modified search results because they will have a label “sponsored results” or “Ads related to [any keyword]”. It might be really dangerous to click on those ads because you might end up on untrustworthy web pages very quickly. What is more, your search queries and other information, e.g. IP address, your location, Internet service provider, and the version of OS that run on your PC will be recorded. Yes, there are no personal details; however, non-personal information might still tell some information about you. On top of that, it is very likely that all this collected information will be sent to third-parties, so Search.results-hub.com browser hijacker might use your Internet connection too.Search.results-hub.com screenshot
