What is Genieonews.com?
Genieonews.com is a shady search tool that operates as a browser hijacker. It was noticed spreading in software installers and hijacking Safari, Google Chrome, or Firefox. Instantaneously after infiltration, users’ homepage, new tab URL, and the search engine are set to http://tab.genieonews.com/. In addition, hijacker alters the browser’s settings in order to prevent users from setting their preferred search tool or homepage. Even though it seems legitimate and useful, you should know that it shows misleading search results to trick users into visiting sponsored websites. The main problem is that you can be redirected to a malicious website as there is no guarantee that all links provided by this PUP are safe. Therefore, we recommend you to remove Genieonews.com as soon as possible.
