The Securesearch.site Web portal was reported in browser hijacking cases for the first time on September 11th, 2017. A closer inspection of Securesearch.site revealed that the site mimics the default new tab on Google Chrome and redirects users to Securesearch.site/search.php?q=[KEYWORD] which resembles Google.com closely. Securesearch.site says a customized Google engine powers it but we found that the search results at Securesearch.site are generated via Traffisco.com, which serves as an ad platform. The embedded search results produced by Traffisco.com allow the operators of Securesearch.site to increase their profit from targeted advertisements and sponsored search results. The market for Internet search services is dominated by Google, Bing, and Yahoo, and it is tough for new players to assert their position and expand. That may have been a reason for the Securesearch.site creators to reach out to freeware developers.
