About this threat

Search.moviegoat.com is a browser intruder considered to be a quite low-level infection. Extremely seldom do users set up the browser hijacker willingly and most often, they are not even aware of how it happened. Try to recall whether you have recently set up some kind of freeware, since browser intruders commonly use application packages to distribute. A hijacker is not thought to be malevolent and therefore shouldn’t do any direct damage. Be aware, however, that you may be redirected to sponsored websites, as the hijacker aims to make pay-per-click profit. Redirect viruses don’t filter through the websites so you could be rerouted to one that would lead to a damaging program threat. It is in no way useful to you, so keeping it is rather pointless. Uninstall Search.moviegoat.com and you can go back to normal surfing. Search.moviegoat_.com-_5.jpg
