A Hijacker is a type of malware which causes modifications to be made to a users’ system without adequate notice, consent, or control to the user. Hijackers can modify browser settings, redirect webpages or network requests to unintended destinations, or replace web content. Hijackers can be frustrating to remove, as they can be built to restore hijacked settings each time the system is restarted.
