Where does come from?

As mentioned, it is important to understand how such programs get distributed around the web. When you know that, you will understand your own role in that distribution scheme. Of course, we are not trying to say that you install and other similar programs on purpose. It is more like, you do not know that such applications are about to be added to your system, and you simply fall into a trap.

So, it goes without saying that does not have a direct distribution source because no one would want to have such a program. Instead, the browser hijacker comes bundled with freeware. Users tend to download freeware applications from file-sharing sites without really checking whether the third-party installers that distribute those programs are reliable or not. As a result, they end up installing several applications via the same installer. You probably do not even notice that some application comes bundled with additional features or programs.

Normally, it should be possible to avoid installing unwanted applications by deselecting them during the installation process. However, users tend to just breeze through the setup because they think it is a default process, and there is nothing left to tweak. As a result, and other unwanted applications get installed on your computer. Yes, you have read it right: You probably installed several other unwanted programs with the application you downloaded. This browser hijacker is just one of the few issues you have to deal with.

What does do?

Having discussed the program’s distribution methods, we can focus on its behavior. Technically, the program does not present us with anything unusual. works just like any other browser hijacker out there.

It is compatible with Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer, so it can affect a wide range of Internet users. When the hijacker enters a target system, it changes the homepage and search engine settings on the default browser. Some users may not think that there is anything suspicious about it because it looks like a genuine search provider. What’s more, the browser hijacker uses a custom version of the Yahoo! Search engine, so it might seem as though this program works along with the popular search engine. However, that does not give you grounds to trust

If anything, this browser hijacker will collect information on what websites you visit and the keywords you enter in your search box. When the program has collected enough information about you, it will start displaying a lot of commercial content, related to your likes and preferences.

When you see custom commercial content, you are more likely to interact with it, so relies on that when it tries to push you into clicking its links. The reason it needs your clicks is, obviously, money. The browser hijacker was released with the intention to make some financial profit, and it does that by employing the pay-per-click system.

This system is not illegal, and you can CHOOSE to not click the promoted links, but quite often users click them away out of pure habit. The biggest problem here is that some of those links could be embedded with corrupted content. does not check where its promotional content leads you, so there is always a chance that you could encounter something malicious on the other end.
