Vosteran.com is the deceptive site that poses as results improving and browsing sessions enhancing program that is considered to fall into the category of potentially unwanted programs due to intrusive behavior and relation with advertisers and third-party PUP developers.
The page misleads people by claiming to offer useful and valuable features of searching online and providing access to common social media sites, online shopping pages. However, when using Vosteran.com as a search engine, it shows altered results filled with advertising material in the form of banners, pop-ups, and in-text links. All these injections trigger redirects and expose the user to more shady material and possibly dangerous content.
Vosteran Search is not a legitimate or useful program that could be considered needed, so the site is not safe to visit or use as a search engine. Since this is a result of the PUP infection, there are additional symptoms that should occur due to the infiltration and more deceptive techniques used to expose the victim to potentially harmful pages.
