2345.com is a Chinese Web directory that has been active for over ten years. This website is among one of the most popular online destinations in the whole of China, and as such, you'd expect that this website is fully safe and user-friendly. While this is true for the most part, there have been reports of browser hijackers being associated with 2345.com. The 2345.com browser hijacker isn't threatening nor is it harmful, but installing it on your computer may become the cause of a large number of annoying and unauthorized changes to your web browser's configuration.

The changes in question may differ depending on the type of 2345.com hijacker you install, but in almost all cases users may have their default homepage, search engine, and new tab page changed to 2345.com. Naturally, since the website is Chinese, the hijackers primary targets are Chinese-speaking Internet users. However, even residents of other countries may unknowingly come across the hijacker in question, and they may end up having their web browser redirect to 2345.com.

If you notice the 2345.com web page in your web browser, or you suspect that you may have unknowingly agreed to allow this browser hijacker to modify your browser's configuration, we advise you to scan and secure your computer immediately with the assistance of a trustworthy anti-malware solution.
