Do-search.com may look like a legitimate website created to assist users with their search sessions. However, security experts and malware researchers started to classify this threat as browser hijacker due to its constant redirections to potentially unwanted websites.

Once installed, Do-search.com changes your DNS settings and hijacks the main browsers like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox. That results in continuous redirections to domain do-search.com. This browser hijacker is spread by using spam e-mail attachments, freeware or shareware programs.

Do-search.com collects and stores all information about internet users activity, logs every visited website. All gathered data is sent to marketing companies. The company that is responsible for developing Do-search.com malware, pays a certain amount per install for their affiliates, and this is the reason why it is exploited by so many online marketers.
