Deceiving domain - search.kuklorest.com

Type: Browser Hijackers

Search.kuklorest.com is the shady search engine that shows questionable content and makes users visit the unwanted sites and freeware distributing pages. It aims to trick people into using the useless search engine as their default on, so results can get injected with advertisements and sponsored material that triggers additional redirects with one click on the material. 

PUPs are the ones that redirect users to search.kuklorest.com. Such infections get bundled to costless programs like multimedia players, games, system tools, download managers, and shady system optimizers. In most cases, free download sites include PUPs as additional installs and users unknowingly get those apps installed by choosing the wrong type of installation.

Once such program loads on the machine modifications start with start-up files, search engine alterations, and browser redirects. But the browser hijacker can cause issues with your privacy due to third-party data tracking involvement.
