Home Malware Programs Browser Hijackers Anghabar.ru


Posted: November 3, 2016

Anghabar.ru is a low-quality Russian search engine that delivers search results by redirecting users through the Go.mail.ru search API. This website may seem suspicious because it has a tendency to appear in your Web browser even though you have never visited it before. The good news is that the reason for this is not some threatening application that you should be worried about. Often, users whose Web browsers start redirecting them to Anghabar.ru whenever they attempt to open a new tab page or access their homepage, suffer from this annoying problem because they agreed to install a browser hijacker on their computers unknowingly.

The Anghabar.ru browser hijacker is not a threatening piece of software, and the only purpose it serves is to modify the settings of popular Web browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer so that their homepage and new tab page are set to Anghabar.ru automatically. This way, the browser hijacker generates traffic for Anghabar.ru, and also improves the visibility of the advertisements hosted there, therefore increasing ad revenue for the Anghabar.ru's owners.

Apart from the small search field, Anghabar.ru also features three quick links that point to Google, Yandex, and Mail.ru, all popular Web destinations that are not associated with any suspicious activities or threat distribution. Although Anghabar.ru is not a threatening Web page, there's no valid reason to keep using it if it appeared in your Web browser when you didn't set it as your default homepage and new tab page intentionally. Users whose Web browsers redirect them to Anghabar.ru randomly are advised to run an anti-malware scanner since this is the swiftest and most efficient way to get rid of the Anghabar.ru browser hijacker and restore your Web browser's regular settings.
