Browser hijackers can be quite the pain in the neck, and we’re sure you will agree with that if a browser hijacker called Laserveradedomaina “Virus” is what brought you to this page. You probably noticed something wasn’t quite right when you opened your favorite browser (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc.) only to find that its homepage had been changed and there’s a new default search engine in place of the one you had originally set. After that you probably headed over to the setting to change things back, but only found that those same homepage and search engine would be there to greet you the next time you opened your browsing program. Not to mention all those annoying page redirects that have started happening, as well as increased flow of online ads. All of this can be pretty frustrating, but guess what! We have a solution for your problem and it means removing Laserveradedomaina “Virus” from your system. We have designed a special removal guide specifically for this purpose and you can find it on this page, just below the following article.

Are browser hijackers dangerous? What to know

The first concern of most users who end up infected by a hijacker like Laserveradedomaina “Virus” is whether or not they’ve been attacked by a virus. Of course, it’s a legitimate reason to worry, but luckily that not the case. As a matter of fact, browser hijackers, as a software category, aren’t considered anywhere near as harmful as malware and various other dangerous cyber threats. Nevertheless, they aren’t thought of as completely benign either. With that in mind, you should be aware that there are certain aspects to the way hijackers behave that place them in a kind of middle position between viruses and helpful, safe, legitimate software. That’s the position we refer to as potentially unwanted programs or PUPs. Consider them generally safe, but with some shady features that you’re probably better off without.

Such are for example the data-gathering tactics that software of this type typically employs for the sake of optimizing its advertising campaigns. What we mean is that programs like Laserveradedomaina “Virus” are most commonly used by their developers to generate profit by getting users to click on various sponsored ads. This is achieved by aggressively distributing the said ads, but also by keeping a close eye on what you do online. So, for example, your social media activity, search queries and overall browsing history can all be monitored by this program, in order to determine where you current interests lie. This, in turn, can allow it reposition its ads, so that you are more exposed to the ads that it thinks will appeal to you.

It’s a neat trick, but hardly anyone would enjoy the thought of being pried on like that, especially if it’s by some uninvited program that also being extremely irritating. On a more serious note even, all those page redirects and the overall advertising process can potentially expose you to actual online threats and viruses. The thing is that, though Laserveradedomaina “Virus” is not itself malicious, there’s no telling which of the hundreds of advertised websites could have ended up being compromised by hackers. In addition, cybercriminals also like to use malicious online ads for the distribution of very dangerous malware like Trojans and ransomware. These are certainly not the type of programs you want anywhere near your computer. So with this information in mind, it’s probably best to steer clear from all the online ads and just try to focus on removing the browser hijacker from your computer as soon as you’re done reading here.

And once you have taken care of that, you will probably also want to make sure that you don’t land similar infections ever again. Spam emails, other hijackers and online popups and fake notifications are common sources for programs like this. But the number one way of landing a hijacker is from a program bundle. You could have downloaded some program and installed it without paying any attention to the setup. That’s how this kind of software sneaks in, if it was added in the setup and you simply overlooked it. So to prevent this, we advise you to be more careful with the installation process of new programs, keeping an eye out for any added components.

  • You should probably remove them from the file but we’d advise you to first send them to us so that we can be sure that the said IPs are indeed not supposed to be in your Hosts file.
