Foreshadow: What you need to know

The start of the year seemed to open with a bang on the cybersecurity news front. The Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities made headlines with fears that they could be as bad, if not worse, than the previous Heartbleed vulnerability that made its mark on CPUs previously. Since then every now and then news trickles in of a researcher having been able to exploit those vulnerabilities in slightly new ways.

Immediately after infiltration, Search App hijacks web browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and assigns new tab URL, default search engine, and homepage options by assigning as searchfort.online. These changes aren't significant. However, users still are unable to revert them. Research discovered that searchfort.online continues to reassign browsers' options each time attempts to change them are made. For this re...
