A popular browser hijacker, Conduit Search

Browser hijackers are search engines that are often bundled with freeware and shareware downloads on the Internet. A browser hijacker's purpose is usually to change the user's default search engine (e.g. change google.com to search.conduit.com), in an attempt to generate revenue.

Protecting yourself from browser hijackers

Here are some helpful tips to avoid being a victim of a browser hijacker like Delta Search:

  • A typical scam is an advertisement with the text "Your browser is out of date!", which persuades the user to click the ad, thus launching the hijacker/malware.
  • Do not download software from unknown publishers unless you have a very good reason to do so.
  • Never visit a site you think is suspicious.
  • Always have antivirus software installed and keep it up-to-date.
