Do you know what Search.searchjmt.com is?
Your homepage may have changed in your main browsers and now Search.searchjmt.com appears whenever you launch them. It is also possible that you have not noticed this change because this search page may look similar to other, reliable ones. However, our researchers say that this just another annoying browser hijacker from the notorious Polarity family that has given us Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com, Search.hgetsports.net, and Search.searchedd.com among dozens of others. These search websites are basically identical with minor differences. But they all provide you with modified search results in order to promote affiliates and thus generate income. Unfortunately, these affiliates are not guaranteed to be always trustworthy. This means that the content you could be presented with by this browser hijacker may be potentially harmful to engage with. Therefore, we suggest that you act now and remove Search.searchjmt.com from your browsers immediately.
When you find a browser hijacker like this in your browsers, it is quite possible that you have installed a freeware bundle recently. Maybe you wanted to install a single free application but when you search for it on the web, you landed on an unfamiliar file-sharing site like filewon.com, malavida.es, and descargar.es. Please note that there are lots of fake and malicious P2P websites like torrent sites, which are infamous for promoting questionable software packages as well as unsafe third-party ads. Clicking on any content provided by these sites can result in your infecting your computer with all kinds of threats. Such a package may contain browser hijackers, Trojan programs, keyloggers, and ad-supported programs as well, in addition to a possibly legitimate free program you may want to install. You need to make sure that you know exactly what you are installing every time you install free software. You need to read all the screens carefully not to miss out any important details like checkboxes notifying you about browser setting changes. These installers are rather tricky and may direct your focus somewhere else while you may overlook such notifications. This is how you can install malware infections by default. And, this is why you should delete Search.searchjmt.com. Once it is gone, you should scan your system with a trustworthy malware scanner to see what else needs to be taken care of.Search.searchjmt.com screenshot
