What is Vipsearch.top?
According to security researchers, Vipsearch.top is a website that promoted by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) belonging to the group of Browser hijackers. Browser hijacker is a kind of software that is designed to change the web-browser settings without the knowledge or permission of the computer user, and it usually redirects the affected system’s web-browser to some advertisement-related web sites. A browser hijacker redirects user web searches to its own website, initiates numerous pop ups, modifies the default web browser search engine or homepage, generates multiple pop-up advertisements and installs multiple toolbars on the web-browser. If your computer has been affected by a browser hijacker you may need to perform manual steps or use a malware removal tool to revert changes made to your internet browsers.
If your computer is infected with Vipsearch.top you will be forced to use its own search engine. It could seem not to be dangerous, but you still should be very careful, since it can display intrusive and malicious advertisements developed to force you into buying certain questionable applications or products, provide search results which may redirect your web-browser to some deceptive, misleading or harmful web sites. We recommend that you use only the reliable search provider such as Google, Yahoo or Bing.
And finally, Vipsearch.top can be used to collect lots of sensitive info about you such as what web pages you’re opening, what you are looking for the World Wide Web and so on. This information, in the future, can be sold to third parties. So, we suggest you delete Vipsearch.top from Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and MS Edge as soon as possible.
