Deceiving domain - Web.bwanet.ca

Type: Browser Hijackers

Web.bwanet.ca is a browser-hijacking app (potentially unwanted program) that alters major browser settings, including the default search provider. Once your search engine is set to a new one, there is a big chance that you will receive misleading search results if you continue using it.

Browser hijackers can also install unexpected BHOs (browser helper objects) such as extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons that are responsible for flooding users with unwanted advertisements, deals, and various notifications. Also, you might start experiencing frequent redirecting activities during browsing sessions.

Web.bwanet.ca can get distributed to your computer through bundled software, so you need to be careful while choosing from where to download your products as you might be tricked by a trustworthy-looking program and end up with a browser hijacker as an additional product.
