How does Alarabeyes.com work?
Alarabeyes.com works in a similar manner to other browser hijackers. It changes your settings without your permission and replaces your home page and default search provider. The site that these settings are switched to contains plenty of quick access links and advertisements. Not all ads presented on it are reliable. The same can most likely be said about the links that are on it as well. We suggest that you stay away from all ads brought to you by the program including the ones that you will see on other sites which are not affiliated with the hijacker. The results page that you will get redirected to if you use the search engine will also be filled with sponsored content that should be avoided.
The reason we suggest you stay away from ads provided by the hijacker is because they may be fake. False adverts could lead to malware harboring pages. They may also expose you to other virtual scams aimed at extorting your money, acquiring your personal details and so on. Because of the annoying ads, your Internet connection will slow down. The application is known to affect system speed as well. You should terminate Alarabeyes.com if you want to eliminate these symptoms for good.
