If you notice your  homepage on your web browser  set to and you can not even recall doing that, it means your computer is definitely infected and you should take care of that as soon as you can. This virus is not really that dangerous, but it is listed as browser hijacker and might eventually cause some unwanted problems in the future.
Once you become a victim of this infection, you will be forced to use every time you try to browser the Internet. This infection is called browser hijacker but this is not for no reason. It will basically  alter settings on your web browsers and set homepage and default search engine to so this website will pop-up every time you open a web browser or make a search query for something on the Internet.
The very first sign that this website is not reliable is it was mainly developed by the Polarity Technologies LTD, a  very well-known company which is popular for creating and distributing malware. We have already informed our readers about infections like or, that both of them were developed by the same company, and it looks like the main goal of this company is to distribute malware, hijack web traffic and make money by displaying pesky advertisements and affiliated products.
Basically, this browser hijacker is targeted to 3 Internet browsers, mainly, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. They are by far the most popular web browsers across the globe. Once it has infiltrated  the system, it affects mainly the web browser, it will provide you with the website that looks like search engine and features additional toolbar. If you try to search for something using virus, your search will be executed via Yahoo, so it’s completely OK and the results can be trusted, but, could  track and record your search queries, so it’s still definitely not a good idea.
We  highly suggest you to take a closer look at the toolbar featured on your homepage. You will see that it consists of several links to legitimate websites and two links to affiliated sources. Take note that one of them is which is also a well known browser hijacker.
Mainly, it is a website of fake news and can be extremely dangerous, so if you have accidentally visited it, leave the site immediately and don’t click on any of headlines.
One of the affiliated links on the toolbar  is this Weatherly, a.k.a. Local Weather plugin. This plugin is supposed to provide the users with weather forecast in the local area, however, we have tested it and it failed to deliver accurate results. We consider it to be malicious  because every single browser hijacker released by Polarity Technologies LTD is definitely  promoting this tool.
