Furthermore, our researchers say users should be careful with moviesNet Search provided search engine too. It appears to be all search queries might be redirected through movie.eanswers.com/search and then to search.yahoo.com/yts. The user might not notice the first redirection, and with the second one, he may think the results are displayed by Yahoo search engine, although it is not entirely correct. As mentioned earlier, it could be a modified search.yahoo.com version, and so it is possible the application might inject the results with targeted ads based on the information the potentially unwanted program manages to gather. Since the add-ons creators do not take any responsibility for their product or third-party content it is quite possible some of the ads could be potentially dangerous, e.g., they might lead to scam sites, web pages containing malware, and so on.
All things considered, moviesNet Search seems rather suspicious, and as we do not think its provided search engine is any better than the original Yahoo or Google search tools, we do not believe it is worth taking any risks.
