Deceiving domain - luckybeginning.com

Type: Browser Hijackers

Luckybeginning.com is the main page that users see as soon as they launch their browsers after they install a potentially unwanted application on their computers. In most of the cases, the PUP uses deception for installation, meaning that it does not ask for direct permission from users in order to be installed.

Upon infiltration, Luckybeginning.com also sets itself as the new tab URL and applies a customized search engine that directs all the searches to Google.com or another reputable search tool. The shown search results are not genuine, as they are filled with sponsored links that bring users to affiliated sites. Each of the visits guarantees the developers of the PUP with profits.

Luckybeginning.com also presents access to Privacy Policy or other important documents that state the terms of site usage. A substantial amount of non-personally identifiable as well as personally identifiable information might be gathered from users as per developer's statement:
