Myweb.house – Methods of Delivery
Myweb.house might be delivered using various methods, one of which is with third-party installations. The installer setups are found in bundled programs and freeware which might be set to install more components by default on your PC. That happens without proper notification in most cases. You might have tried to install a video converter or some free software and got your browser settings switched by this hijacker. You can prevent unwanted programs like these from affecting your computer system. All you got to do is find Custom or Advanced options and deselect any unwanted components.
Myweb.house might be delivered with more methods, as well. Those ways usually involve a browser extension or some add-on which installs in your browser software. Other delivery methods utilize advertisements, like pop-ups, pop-unders, banners and even redirect links. Sponsored advertisements and targeted content on suspicious websites could deliver the hijacker, too. Those websites could also be partnered or somehow affiliated with Myweb.house in some way. The following browsers can be affected: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and Mozilla Firefox.
Myweb.house – More Information
Myweb.house works with many advertisers which are its partners. Thus, the hijacker will redirect you and show you advertisements. When you use its search, you won’t be redirected to a different search engine. So, every search query that you make will go through servers of the hijacker. The page you see above replaces the homepage, new tab and the default search for each browser you own. An add-on that is associated to the program could be found on the Internet, serving the same purpose as the redirect.
Here you can see one of the landing pages that you will be redirected to from just about any click on the hijacker’s site. It is the site efbet.com:
The picture shown under this paragraph displays an example of a search that was done on the Myweb.house search engine. The search results on the first page are in the Polish language, linking to pages in Polish, and it doesn’t matter from which country you did the search. This hijacker filters each of your search queries, so everything you enter in it is sent to servers associated with the hijacker’s developers.
The website, its advertisements, and redirects load many, different cookies to track you and see how you interact with all the content on the site. Other tracking technologies could have been utilized, as well. Be very careful with the information you are giving out in your searches, especially on pages connected to Myweb.house. Refrain from clicking on suspicious links and advertisements, as they could acquire data about you very easily. That data could later be used to show you targeted content and advertisements.
The following information can be collected:
- Internet protocol (IP) addresses
- Your browser type
- Your Internet Service Provider (ISP)
- Date and time stamp of visits
- Referring/exit pages
- The number of clicks you do
These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
That is concerning, since IP addresses, your ISP, demographic information is all considered personal information. Thus, the statement in itself creates a paradox, and the ones who wrote it are lying to you.
Also, consider this quotation from the Policy about the advertising partners of Myweb.house:
Further down in the Policy you can read how all advertising sites have policies of their own, which are applied to you whenever you see their ads, disregarding the policy of the website you are on. So, you should be very careful with what you input into the search bars of the hijacker and where you click on.
