Video: Installed through Security Holes provides a proprietary domain name system that allows it to sell nonstandard domain names to advertisers. These proprietary domains are resolved through's own servers, so these domains are accessible only to users whose ISPs have chosen to support (few have), or to users with's client software installed on their PCs...... finds itself little liked by experts on Internet infrastructure and security. But where are users in this mess? I have never spoken with a user who actually wanted, but I have looked at plenty of massively-infected computers with installed. So I have long suspected nonconsensual, improper, or overly aggressive installations of software. - Video: Installed through Security Holes
