While many users do not consider browser hijackers as a threat, you should know that they can be a source of security risks if you are not careful.

Where does Youndoo come from?
This browser hijacker keeps the tradition of its peers and mostly travels the web in free software bundles. These packages can be quite dangerous to install because you may allow browser hijackers, adware programs, and potentially unwanted applications onto your system among others. These malware threats can cause a lot of headaches for you apart from being very annoying with the constant flow of third-party ads. It is possible that you have been looking for free files or programs to download and that is how you ended up on questionable websites. Schemers make sure that their malicious fake websites get ranked high in search engines so that they appear among the first few results. Hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting computer users land on such sites every day. That is why it is great business to promote third-party bundles on these pages to spread malware infections on the web.
It is also possible that an adware application managed to slither onto your computer previously and this infection displays corrupt ads that you click on. All in all, in order to infect your system with such a malicious bundle, you need to click on unsafe third-party ads no matter where they come from. We recommend that you always use official or reputable websites whenever you want to download free software or tools. But right now you should not hesitate to scan your PC with a reliable online malware scanner to detect all possible threats after you remove Youndoo from your system.
How does Youndoo work?
There is nothing unique or new about this browser hijacker as it simply follows the footsteps of its predecessors including dozensearch.com and yessearches.com.
