SearCh-oNewTab is a low quality search engine that is a part of a known advertising practice. The program uses a browser hijacker to force the infected computer to visit SearchNewTab, installs various adware to display advertisement on the compromised Web browser and possibly spyware to gather information about the victim's computer and browsing habits for market research or to sale it to a third party. Multiple trusted antivirus scanners have detected possible malware in SearCh-oNewTab.
