Search.pensirot.com is a browser hijacker. So what does it do? Right, it hijacks. It hijacks your default homepage, new tab URL and search engine and, in the place of all of these websites, this rogue extension places Search.pensirot.com.
If you have Search.pensirot.com may be redirected to harmful domains. The ads on your screen may include corrupted code, and your browser might not function properly. Computer users may experience pop-ups by Search.pensirot.com and may be welcomed to install an unofficial chat client for social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Search.pensirot.com will become your homepage and new tabs on all of your browsers. Changes will be made without your permission and you will be unable to undo them unless you first uninstall Search.pensirot.com from the computer. Until then, every time you open your browser, be it Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, you will be led to Search.pensirot.com. A search engine ( Search.pensirot.com) will be displayed and if you were to use it, you would be redirected to Yahoo. This search engine is useless because if you wanted Yahoo, you can just go directly to that page. There is not need to have some questionable hijacker on your computer. If you were to use it, it may start tracking your browsing sessions and recording information about you. It’s not personal data but rather what sites you visit, your browsing habits, etc. That information would then be sold to third-parties who would use it for their own purposes. We suggest you remove Search.pensirot.com.
