Deceiving domain - rd.bizrate.com

Type: Adware

Rd.bizrate.com is a dangerous URL that is set to redirect users' online traffic to various advertising services. It appears in the browser address bar once the user clicks on an infected link and displays offers, deals, or clickbait content which is aimed to attract views and page visits. This is nothing but a pay-per-click, revenue-driven cyber infection. 

The website shows different content regarding the particular malvertising campaign, but the biggest issue is that rd.bizrate.com redirects users to questionable material, and there is no guarantee that you won't end up on an unsafe website. People behind such a page can also track their victims to continue to redirect them to commercial services by displaying eye-catching content.
