Hello! I have recently installed Yandex Browser and as I can see there is a thread about Trovi.com browser hijacker installed by Yandex browser. I noticed that all searches made with Bing search engine are redirected to trovi.com and then you see Kaspersky warning. I scanned my system with Malwarebytes ADWCleaner and it found this entry in registry

HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\ShimInclusionList\browser.exe

Anyway I have googled Yandex Browser and trovi.com and I found
Hybrid-Analysis Yandex.exe
Yandex Browser redirects to Trovi.com when doing Bing searches

What do you think?

I really liked Yandex's appearance and functionality. But the Trovi.com thing is making me uncomfortable. Why Ynadex is using such nasty techniques ?

When in doubt and your not comfortable don't use it.... I'm afraid nowadays almost everybody is spying on everybody. Maybe try Brave?
Thanks for your suggestion. I will definitely give Brave a try.

Well opera, cent browser, comodo dragon, firefox are also advertising sites

You get rid of trovi by changing your search engine,
I did remove Bing search engine from Yandex.

Licencing, it is not like they have a choice. Bing is not free.

I see. The weird thing is when I removed Bing search engine from Yandex and tried to add it again manually, Trovi.com is back -_-

I am currently using Yandex as my default browser. Very secure and reliable. I had tried it many years ago and now I decided to give it a new chance. Regards!
I really like its appearance and functionality.
