Once the hijacker enters, it doesn’t waste any time. It starts working immediately. It first goes after your browsers. It adds a pesky plugin to each of them thus taking control. That’s how the MyHomePage.pro becomes your constant online shadow. Every time you so much as touch one of your browsers, you see the site. It is always there. It even replaces your previous homepage and search engine without your permission. It doesn’t need your consent to operate. It acts like it sees fit. Yet, there is more. The MyHomePage.pro is not the only dodgy site you are forced to see on daily basis. There are many others.
The hijacker redirects you constantly. You are always exposed to malware risk as nothing you see because of this pest is reliable. A single wrong click and you automatically download more malware on your already compromised computer. Don’t think that avoiding clicking will solve your problem. Oh, no.

How did the hijacker enter? The MyHomePage.pro appeared because the hijacker had already managed to get in. But how did it do it? The answer is because of you. You are the reason your machine is infected. Of course, we don’t mean you downloaded the pest on purpose but you were careless enough to let it trick you and slip by you. Your carelessness is the one thing infections cannot succeed without. They need it. No infiltration method is good enough to work without your inactive cooperation.
In future, pay more attention to your online activities. Be more careful and cautious. Avoid visiting suspicious pages and using unverified download sources. Sometimes when you say “yes” to something, this something may be an infection trying to attack you. Do your due diligence.
