Yeabests.cc Description


Yeabests.cc is a dubious search platform that you should not use for security reasons. Yeabests.cc may transfer you towards threatening Web pages that may cause damage. Yeabests.cc itself is closely associated with a harmful add-on that may hijack all of your Web clients. This browser hijacker may make Yeabests.cc your homepage automatically. Some users report that they may encounter Yeabests.cc whenever they open new tabs as well. This stubborn add-on may make it impossible for you to revert the changes Yeabests.cc causes. Even if you switch your homepage to another domain, you may still notice Yeabests.cc the next time you go online. This unreliable search platform promises custom Google searches. Yeabests.cc copies most of the results directly from Google's databases. The trick is that Yeabests.cc may include a lot of sponsored links as well, which you may notice in the first place on several result pages. The administrators of this suspicious platform have financial incentives to redirect PC users towards these third-party sites. Some of the affiliated domains may be safe e-commerce platforms. The problem is that other links may load harmful sites that may attempt to deploy threats to your system. You also should beware of fraudulent pages, which may, for example, offer you fake technical support. The probability for these issues to occur doesn't mean that you will reach such sites the first time you use Yeabests.cc. However, you may find yourself on irrelevant domains that don't offer the information or software that you are searching for. All in all, Yeabests.cc may not improve your searches and instead cause damage, so you should abstain from using it. The browser hijacker is pretty persistent, so you should delete it with credible security software. In the future, you should be careful when you load freeware bundles because it is the most common distribution method for suspicious Web add-ons.
