Yah000.net Description

Yah000.net Screenshot 1Yah000.net is a search site that imitates Yahoo's homepage as a way of making gullible PC users interact with its content. Given its fraudulent nature, Yah000.net should be considered potentially dangerous, and SpywareRemove.com malware researchers recommend that you use the highest caution whenever you're interacting with Yah000.net or Yah000.net's search results. Although Yah000.net is designed to look all but identical to the real Yahoo homepage, Yah000.net isn't affiliated with Yahoo and any repeated contact with Yah000.net may be a possible sign of the presence of a browser hijacker on your PC. To guarantee your computer's continued safety as much as is possible, Yah000.net-related infections can be deleted by dedicated anti-malware programs as soon as they're detected.

What's Not Worth Yahooing About When It Comes to Yah000.net

Yah000.net is expertly designed to look identical to the normal starting page for Yahoo, complete with Yahoo's articles, advertisements, sidebar and search engine. However, visitors to Yah000.net will notice several telltale signs of Yah000.net being a fraud. Because Yah000.net is unable to detect your Yahoo account, Yah000.net always displays visitors as signed out, and the majority of Yah000.net's links aren't functional.

The one thing about Yah000.net that SpywareRemove.com malware experts have confirmed to work is its search engine, which also is designed to look like Yahoo's own search feature. This appears to be a particularly intricate scam to make visitors use Yah000.net's search engine and generate easy pay-per-click profits, which allow Yah000.net's web masters to profit from deceived PC users.

To their surprise, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers haven't seen any history of promoting malicious content from Yah000.net, although this may purely be indicative of Yah000.net's hoax being newly-identified and, therefore, incompletely analyzed by the relevant PC security organizations. For the time being, since Yah000.net doesn't have any reason to care about the safety of its visitors after they've clicked the links that Yah000.net promotes for its own sake, you should undergo any searches through Yah000.net with the utmost care.

Turning Yah000.net into a Big Zero as Far as Your Browser is Concerned

Along with its own traits, Yah000.net also has acquired some infamy due to its promotion by malicious software with browser-hijacking functions. Browser hijackers for Yah000.net and other sites may perform some or all of the following attacks in the course of compromising your web-browsing safety:

  • They may change your homepage to Yah000.net.
  • They may redirect you to Yah000.net when you try to visit other sites (particularly, of course, Yahoo.com).
  • They may redirect your searches through Yah000.net instead of allowing you to use a preferable search site.

SpywareRemove.com malware experts consider all variants of browser hijackers, including those for Yah000.net, to be significant (if occasionally low-level) security risks. Anti-malware programs can remove browser hijackers related to Yah000.net easily, although you may also be required to boot into Safe Mode or use other methods that can assist with an accurate system scan.
