Downie 4

The Downie 4 is a software known by security technicians as a browser hijacker. Computer users who have the Downie 4 installed in their Chrome, Firefox, Safari or another browser may often experience page redirects to ad-supported sites and be inundated with pop-up messages on their screen.

This software works in a way that causes major Web navigational chaos, according to the users who have it on their systems. Mainly, the Downie 4 sets a brand new search engine and replaces the default homepage address with a different one. Because of that, every time the users open the compromised Web browser, they get inundated with sponsored search results and aggressive pop-up advertisements, banners and notifications that repeatedly ask them to click on many Web links.
