Shopzilla.com’s interface is quite attractive in a Web 2.0 kind of design. An oversized, ‘Go’ button, rounded edges, bright orange design and a simple layout. A minimalist shopping car log completes the illusion. It is a pity that Shopzilla.com is linked to dangerous browser hijackers. Much like similar websites Google Redirect Virus, a major component of various rootkits, including Alureon and the ZeroAccess rootkit. While the Shopzilla.com website in itself will not endanger your computer system, rootkits associated with this dangerous website are among some of the most dangerous malware infections in existence.
Like most websites online, Shopzilla.com generates revenue through advertising and through pay-per-click plans. However, most legitimate websites generate the traffic necessary to make a profit by providing a useful service or interesting content. The criminals using Google Redirect Virus bypass this requirement by forcing their victims to return to the Shopzilla.com website repeatedly. In this way, they inflate their web traffic numbers and stand to gain considerable revenue through advertising and affiliate marketing.
