Tavanero Search is a browser hijacker injecting itself into Google Chrome browser primarily. The hijacker may also be installed into other browsers based on the Chromium open source project. Intrusion of it occurs when users download and install some free software bundled with the hijacker’s installer. Additionally, it could be that the infection gets installed through adding suspicious extensions into browser. Suggested to install such extension may appear in the form of a sudden pop-up through malicious scripts, but definitely such events occur after the system is already infected.
Tavanero Search is not a good provider of search results. It delivers search results from Google Custom Search, but this definitely does not mean that Google is related to this hijacker. Tavanero simply steals search results from it. Once the hijacker gets installed successfully, it changes the home page to begin with tavanero.com. Opening each new tab in browser automatically reveals Tavanero Search (tavanero.com page).
