Websearch.searchissimple.info is a homepage hijacker which is installed by malicious software. This homepage hijacker is bundled with freeware to promote Websearch.searchissimple.info and to make money using advertisements within the search results. Once this Websearch.searchissimple.info browser hijacker is installed on your computer, the default search engine and homepage for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox is replaced with Websearch.searchissimple.info.
Once you search using Websearch.searchissimple.info your search term is redirected to random search engines, as Tuvaro.com, LocalMoxie.com, Google.com. This Websearch.searchissimple.info homepage is not malicious process itself and may not be called a “virus”, but it does change security settings within your favorite browser and is distributed by freeware. It’s not strange people refer to it as a virus, as its a generic term for what we call “malware”. We noticed that by installing software our homepage and default search engine was replaced with Websearch.searchissimple.info, but we couldn’t find it in the programs list in Windows as a “normal” name for software. It was named “SNT” aka SearchNewTab. This is a nasty browser hijacker/redirect you need to remove.
