The S.viixie.com address is related to an intrusive browser extension. Like most applications of this type, it is not concerned with delivering beneficial features to its users. Instead, its main functionalities are those of adware and a browser hijacker. Users should keep in mind that these annoying applications are commonly being distributed via questionable methods such as dubious software bundles or fake installers pretending to be for a different product.
If allowed to latch itself onto the user's browser, the annoying S.viixie.com application will be able to modify certain settings to promote the sponsored address. Users will notice that after installing the application, their browser's homepage, new tab page, and default search engine have all started opening the promoted unfamiliar address. In most browser hijacker cases, the new address belongs to a fake search engine. Such questionable engines can redirect the initiated searches to one of the legitimate engines (Yahoo, Bing, Google) or cause redirect chains that could pass through several dubious addresses before displaying low-quality results filled with unrelated advertisements.
While the intrusive application is present on the system, it also will be responsible for the generation of various advertisements displayed as pop-ups, banners, in-text links and more. These advertisements should not be trusted carelessly. It is not uncommon for users who engage with advertisements delivered by unproven or suspicious sources to be taken to unsafe websites, phishing pages, shady adult-oriented sites or offers for additional PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).
