Users that notice their Web browsers experiencing redirects to the findresultsnow.co address may have a browser hijacker lurking on their computers or devices. Indeed, this website has been observed being promoted via such intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). Browser hijackers typically affect the targeted browser's homepage, new tab page and default search engine. The modified settings will be changed to now open the specific promoted page.
In the vast majority of cases, browser hijackers are used as a way to generate artificial traffic and promote fake search engines. However, findresultsnow.co is capable of producing search results on its own. The problem is that users will be shown dubious and low-quality results that are extremely likely to be filled with numerous sponsored advertisements.
PUPs may cause other issues as well. For example, these annoying applications are often equipped with data-monitoring capabilities. While present on the system, they may spy on the user's browsing activities and harvest device details. Some PUPs also have been caught trying to extract banking and payment information, account credentials, and other potentially sensitive information from browsers' autofill data.
