Sapino.net is a classic browser hijacker that modifies your browser settings to promote links it was paid to support. How do you know you’ve got Sapino.net on your browser, though?
The first sign you may have caught a browser hijacker such as sapino.net is an unexpected change in your browser's default home page, new tab page and search engine. If you no longer see the pages you've set earlier, chances are a hijacker may have intervened in the meantime. The new pages and search engines may not necessarily contain malware. However, the latest search engine called Smart Search in Sapino.net’s case will warp the results of your search queries a bit, placing links it got paid to promote above the most popular developments. That's how hijackers work, and that's how they generate cash flow from the sites they advertise.
Browser hijackers usually reach their targets through social engineering tricks. They may come embedded in software bundles. Alternatively, hackers disguised them as fake software updates or placed them in corrupted Web advertisements.
Before trying to remove Sapino.net from your PC, you need to find its exact whereabouts. The latter can be tricky at times because browser hijackers tend to be surprisingly persistent when it comes to their survival on your PC. You may search your browser(s) for unknown extensions manually, but that may not always yield a result. Or, you may let external help in the shape of a reliable anti-malware tool do the job for you.
