coldsearch.com has an official website, info.coldsearch.com, but you cannot download it from there. Actually, the only information you can find on the website is how to remove the “custom search engine” from the major browsers, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. So, it is most likely that users do not install this browser hijacker intentionally.

If you want to restore the web surfing experience you are used to, you most probably do not want coldsearch.com to come up every time you launch your browser. If you cannot download this hijacker directly from a website, it usually means it comes in a free software bundle. This might also have indications of multiple security threats, since there may be other infections, even malicious and more dangerous ones in the same package. Users need to be very careful when visiting file-sharing websites because most of these bundles are downloaded if they click on fake download buttons or links.

coldsearch.com is a new clone in an old family of browser hijackers, including only-search.com, golsearch.com, and holasearch.com. Practically, they all look and function in the same way. Our research team has found that coldsearch.com might use the search result page to insert third-party ads in the form of sponsored links. You need to know that clicking on third-party advertisements or links is never 100% safe. Nobody can ever guarantee that you will be redirected to a reliable and legitimate website. Cyber criminals have sophisticated methods to lure you into clicking on their ads. Once you do, you might find yourself on an infected website that could even run some codes, without your knowledge, and thus harm your system. It is enough to simply land on such a page. You might also be redirected to a fake online shopping site where schemers can steal your banking details. And we could go on and on about what kind of threats you might be exposed to by a single click on the wrong link. In order to avoid these malicious attacks, you need to delete coldsearch.com from your system now.

coldsearch.com is not always easy to remove because even if it has an uninstaller, it might leave components hidden on your system.
