Trovi Search is a fake search engine and it is a product of cyber criminals that are constantly developing and distributing various malware programs to violate users’ privacy and generate web traffic to sponsored websites, and to make profit from those illegal actions. Trovi.com fits into the above concept perhaps more accurately than many other threats of its kind. Trovi Search adware negatively affects computer’s performance and running user’s browsing experience. Trovi Search usually comes together with Trovi Toolbar and Search Protect by Conduit.
Once installed, Trovi Search changes user preferences and browser configurations such as search engine and home page of Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers and sets Trovi.com as default homepage and search engine. The worst part about this is that user is unaware of these changes. Every time user launches the web browser or opens a new tab the Trovi.com page will appear. The page does not look harmful, however it has various obfuscated scripts and hosts multiple malware programs. All of the search results provided by Trovi Search will be irrelevant and filled with pop-up ads, in-text links and sponsored banners. Those pop-up ads and banners are the main source of income for Trovi Search developers and they basically push the whole thing forward since they are paid and the more computer users are forced to view it on Trovi.com the bigger income for developers of this malware. It has also been found that Trovi Search adware implemented data mining of the infected computers for more targeted ads and it is a big privacy issue for the infected users.
