What is Infosearch

Infosearch is a browser-hijacking application that sets https://info-search.page/ webpage as the new search provider. Even if a user wants to get the previous setting back, the browser hijacker will reassign them. The only way to stop this is to get rid of browser hijacker completely which is very difficult because it has the ability to reinstall itself using files left on the system. If you don’t do this, you will get search results by Yahoo filled with bogus links. The main purpose of browser hijacker is to boost affiliate websites’ traffic – the more clicks on sponsored links the more money the virus developers get paid. Also, the browser hijacker can make the unbearable browsing experience by displaying all kinds of advertising garbage or redirecting to shady websites.
