Home Malware Programs Browser Hijackers AutoUpdate.ChekcNewSearch.org


Posted: September 8, 2015

AutoUpdate.ChekcNewSearch.org is a potentially malicious domain that spreads highly questionable software disguised as seemingly legitimate Flash Player updates. This way of delivering dangerous applications has an extensive history and use. The developers of malware and Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) have created numerous misleading platforms that encourage the visitor to download fake updates. To maintain your PC clean and secure, you should not agree to install anything from AutoUpdate.ChekcNewSearch.org and the similar sites Free2updatenow.org, Computerrepairupdate.net and Requiredcomputerupdate.be. The primary reason this strategy is efficient is the fact that the people behind the actual Flash Player release updates on a regular basis. Moreover, the pop-up on AutoUpdate.ChekcNewSearch.org seems pretty convincing: it states that the newer version is faster, user-friendly and supports various formats like *.FLV, *.AVI, *.MPEG, *.MOV, *.MKV and *.SWF. Since this site is unreliable, nobody will type its URL manually. For this reason, the administrators of AutoUpdate.ChekcNewSearch.org have released a browser hijacker, which sets it as the homepage. This way, you may face the deceptive platform whenever you launch Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. This questionable add-on may cause additional unpleasant changes as well – for example, it may insert some commercial materials. It most probably entered stealthily in some software bundle. To prevent the access of such hijackers, you need to perform the setup process through the "Advanced" menu. You should use a special anti-malware program to delete it as soon as possible, which would stop the redirections towards AutoUpdate.ChekcNewSearch.org.
