SearchGlobe.info – Delivery

The SearchGlobe.info redirect could have many delivery ways. One of the more popular ones is via third-party installations of freeware and bundled applications. Usually, applications such as those are torrent clients, media players or converters, for example. The install setups could inject additional features on your computer, by default. Being unaware, the program can easily install such a feature, resulting in the hijacker modifying browser settings. To avoid unwanted content to be installed on your PC you should find a Custom or an Advanced settings menu.

Different delivery ways could involve a browser add-on, extension or a plug-in, put in your browser applications. Banners, pop-ups, pop-unders or different ad types, hosted on websites could be used as yet another delivery method. The hijacker could utilize redirect links for delivering itself as well, while putting them across various websites. Those websites might be partnered or affiliated with SearchGlobe.info. The following browsers could be affected: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and Mozilla Firefox.

SearchGlobe.info – Details
