Do you know what Search.searchbind.net is?
Search.searchbind.net is a new search provider our specialists have come across recently. It was not active at the time of research, but it is only a question of time when its authors start actively promoting it. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm that it will be a fully legitimate search provider, so if you ever discover it set as your new search tool on your browsers (it should be compatible only with the most popular browsers, i.e., Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome), you should replace it with another reputable search tool, e.g., Google or Yahoo right away, especially if you have found those changes applied to your web browsers without your knowledge. Not all the users see Search.searchbind.net set on their browsers as a default search tool, specialists say. According to them, it might also come as a redirect. That is, your all searches might be redirected to it from another domain. In such a case, you will no longer see it only when you erase that domain set on your browsers. We do not think that all the search results Search.searchbind.net will open for you will be fully reliable, so you should get rid of it mercilessly.
Our malware researchers do not think that Search.searchbind.net is one of those fully reliable search providers. According to them, the chances are high that it will show some untrustworthy search results. In other words, users might be presented with the so-called modified search results, specialists say. In the worst-case scenario, they will take them straight to pages administered by cyber criminals. They might contain a ton of harmful malicious applications, and users might allow them to enter their PCs by simply browsing such websites. What is more, we also cannot promise that this search tool will not collect certain details about your activities, e.g., search results you click and search queries you enter in the search box. Yes, these are not personal details, but they might still tell something about you to third parties, so, in our opinion, you should eliminate a suspicious search tool from your browsers as soon as possible. If it has been set as your default search tool, simply go to set a new URL in its place. If your searches are redirected to it from another domain, you should remove it right away as well because it is definitely not a reputable search engine if it redirects users’ searches to Search.searchbind.net.Search.searchbind.net screenshot
