The Dsparking.com website has been associated with infections known as browser hijackers. Many computer users have experienced redirects to the Dsparking.com website against their will. These kinds of redirects typically occur after carrying out a search on a popular search engine such as Yahoo or Google. Because of this tactic, browser hijackers associated with Dsparking.com are commonly known as the Google Redirect Virus or Trojan. Forced redirects are typically a symptom of a severe malware infection. Because of this, if your computer is forcing you to visit Dsparking.com repeatedly, ESG security researchers advise the use of a reliable anti-malware program to check your hard drives and remove any malware responsible for Dsparking.com redirects.
Browser hijackers that cause Dsparking.com redirects will often be components of a large scale rootkit infection. The Google Redirect Virus (typically responsible for Dsparking.com redirects) will activate after the victim carries out a search on Google, Bing, Yahoo or any other popular search engine. Its main effect is changing the search results so that the links lead the victim to the Dsparking.com website instead of to the website corresponding to that particular search result. Many computer users, due to lack of experience, may try to use the Dsparking.com website to search for their content, or they may click on links found on this website. This allows criminals to profit while at the same time exposing the victim to additional malware.
The goal of Dsparking.com redirects is exposing computer users to advertising, typically in the form of pay-per-click marketing. Although advertising is the most common way in which websites generate revenue, most legitimate websites will attract computer users by offering interesting content or by implementing useful features that will make computer users want to return (and view advertisements on that particular website). However, the criminals that set up browser hijackers will not do this, instead using malware to force computer users to visit Dsparking.com repeatedly against their will. To prevent criminals from doing this, ESG malware analysts advise using a reliable anti-malware program to remove any malware on your computer that may be forcing you to visit Dsparking.com against your will.
