This is done using browser add-on that gets installed bundled with other software, typically fTalk – a free Facebook chat client. After installation is completed, any of Internet browsers, such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox are affected. When opening a home page or a search page one gets redirected to adoresearch.com or adoresearch.com/431.
