The application might do so after the user installs the mentioned downloading tool (Pensirot). Just like this program, the search engine could show you third-party advertisements suggesting more software or possibly other content, for example, links to gaming web pages, scam websites, etc. The problem is, you cannot know if the advertised content or the web pages the displayed ads might redirect you to will not be possibly malicious. Apparently, creators cannot say if their third-party partners will not invade your privacy by gathering personal information or will not promote dangerous web pages. Lastly, you may want to know there are no reassurances the browser hijacker will be “error-free, malware-free,” and so on.
