What is 115118.net ?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that 115118.net is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. This one also displays advertisements.

How do I know if my computer is affected by 115118.net ?

You may see this new homepage:

Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of 115118.net ?
