How Did AllInOneDocs Browser Hijacker End Up On My PC?
The usual way of entry used by shady software is through install bundles. Mindpark specializes in that sort of thing. They’ll make semi-useful toolbars that demand of you to install all sorts of additional content, including AllinOneDocs.
Sometimes the products of Mindspark will download and attach themselves to your browser by the simple act of entering their webpages. For example, if you open the MyWay search engine, it’s possible that the toolbar will install on its own.
Why Does AllInOneDocs Toolbar Do These Things?
The main goal of the Mindspark company is to expand their low-tier advertising. They follow the model of Google – make many products that are interconnected and collect data from all of them, get that data and use it to target ads to the right people. The difference is that Google’s services are much better and don’t use hijacking.
The reality is that Google has destroyed all competition and the only way for a low-rent company like Mindspark to compete is to hijack browser and use other unethical ways of distribution. If they were any good, Google would probably just buy them out to prevent competition.
The Mindspark network will attempt to get your:
- IP address
- Personal Interest
- Search results
This information can then be used to extract more data about you, including your name, location, and weird sexual fetishes you may have.
