Home Malware Programs Browser Hijackers Youfoundit.net


Posted: October 29, 2015

Youfoundit.net is an untrustworthy search site that may appear as your homepage automatically. It works in a similar way to Topfindings.net, Searchonlinenow.net, Usearch.co.id and many other questionable platforms. The main purpose of these suspicious sites is to redirect the users to particular third-party pages that are in the partner network. The benefits for the people behind Youfoundit.net from this advertising activity are clear: they receive monetary incentives for each transferred person. However, PC users may not benefit from this dubious engine. Youfoundit.net may not provide the requested information because it may replace the actual results with links towards affiliate sites. This process may even endanger the security of your PC because there is no way to verify if the promoted pages are safe. Some of the links may open potentially malicious pages. After all, the cyber crooks do everything possible to trick unsuspecting users into their harmful domains. If the searched term cannot be associated with any of the partners, Youfoundit.net may not display any results at all. In this case, all that you will notice is an apologizing message. Usually, it doesn't take too long for the PC users to understand that this site is not designed to help them. However, it may be difficult to stop the automatic redirections to it or place another site as the homepage. The reason for these potential problems is that Youfoundit.net is related to an aggressive browser hijacker. This tool may hook as an add-on towards Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. It may appear after you download freeware and don't uncheck bonus components. You may fail if you try to disable the suspicious extension manually, so you should use a dedicated anti-malware solution.
