Thesmartsearch.net Redirect

What is thesmartsearch.net?

Thesmartsearch.net is a website used as an Internet search engine by many potentially unwanted applications and browser hijackers. These rogue apps employ a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' to infiltrate Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox).

After infiltration, these applications modify the new tab URL, homepage, and default search engine settings by assigning them to the thesmartsearch.net website (or another search website, which then redirects to thesmartsearch.net following entry of a search query).

As with regular browser hijackers, thesmartsearch.net is delivered with several small programs called 'helper objects', which prevent users from reverting these changes.

The bundling method allows developers to distribute their applications together with regular software, and therefore, users commonly inadvertently infect their computers during download and installation of free software downloadable from freeware download websites.
