The Web address has been associated with the intrusive activities of browser hijacker applications. Indeed, users are extremely unlikely to willingly visit the page and instead are commonly encountering it as unwanted redirects caused by intrusive applications and browser extensions equipped with browser hijacker functionalities. 

When it comes to their distribution, these annoying PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) are heavily reliant on underhanded methods and tactics. Some examples include shady software bundles or outright fake installers/updaters. The goal is to hide the installation of the dubious program from the attention of the user.

Once the browser hijacker has been deployed on the user's computer or device, it will activate its invasive capabilities and take over the installed Web browsers. The goal is to assume control over certain settings (homepage, new tab page, default search engine) and change them to now open the promoted address. 

Browser hijackers and other PUPs also could silently spy on the user's browsing activities. In the more threatening cases, the intruder applications also could collect numerous device details or even try to extract sensitive banking and payment information that has been saved in the affected Web browsers.
