Our investigation proved itself to be fruitful when we discovered that on the same IP address, Tap.sh website is hosted (2). The service engages in monetization services and hopes to find the best way for users to profit from different networking platforms. We do not know whether the same company is responsible for this browser hijacker (3), but the fact we learned is a bit odd.
The infection occurs when Bilabordnet downloading-optimizer is installed into an operating system. This potentially unwanted program (PUP) can be acquired without users knowledge and presumably receives permissions to activate Search.bilabordnet.com redirect virus in full motion. Search.logicwhatever.com computer virus has been determined to engage in exactly the same tactic of occupying browsers’ preferences without permission.
Also, these malware samples aggressively reject every attempt to remove them: the infected operating systems remain to prefer the unknown platforms. The regular program-elimination techniques won’t achieve anything most of the time. As a result, you will have no choice but to become exposed to malvertising, applying exploit kits to figure out the vulnerabilities of a specific operating system (4).
Another disturbing factors we discovered was that Search.bilabordnet.com malware aims to promote a removal tool which allegedly helps people get rid of this unwanted software However, once Uninstaller.dmg was run through a number of security software apps, we discovered that its true nature. The report (5) clearly show that the promoted removal tool should be described as: Trojan.Adware.MAC.OSX.GenieoCA.1, MacOS:Genieo-BQ [Adw], ADWARE/OSX.Geonei.jzvge, Gen:Variant.Adware.MAC.OSX.GenieoCA.1, Mac.Trojan.Genieo.183, Win32.Adware.Geonei.Plar.
Malware removal 101
Computer viruses have to be treated extremely careful: such a seemingly irrelevant infection like a browser hijacker can soon grow into a much more complicated problem. For instance, you could be exposed to all sorts of disturbing material thanks to redirection which will transfer you to unknown and vicious websites. Even if it is difficult to believe, but simply by entering a domain, you could automatically allow malware to be implanted.
Without your knowledge, malicious infections will obtain control over your device and run in the background after modifying Windows Registry. Therefore, we have to state that spyware could also play a role in here. Providers of free digital data are very frequently distributors of spyware samples. These viruses will collect information about users: both personally-identifiable data and technical information about devices.
First of all, check your browsers for any unknown rogue extensions. If you detect an add-on that you did not agree to install, be sure to remove it. If it keeps coming back, this means that you should try a more aggressive approach. You could follow the guidelines that we have constructed for a manual removal. On the other hand, you can simply run a scan with Spyhunter to be informed about every threat in your operating system.
