Stop Browser Hijacks

Cyber security is a growing concern that unfortunately is here to stay and browser hijacks are no exception.

This is when someone takes controls of your local browser settings by injecting their own. One of the most common ways is when your Google search function is infiltrated – users would initiate a Google search where the results are returned by a Search Engine Result that does look like Google – but when the network has been hijacked, it is far from it.

The result of this is that ads can be falsely monetized and some actions can be used for malicious reasons such as malware droppers and stealing sensitive information.

You can stop this happening quickly and easily with services such as the content filtering solution from partners CleanBrowsing. Within their services they provide a DNS Firewall which stops such browser hijacks from happening. Their blog here, explains more and how their services can help.
