From a victim of Oz.clickflv.com:
“I somehow downloaded a freeware like video player and then my computer got hit by Oz.clickflv.com. Now my browser is always opened with Oz.clickflv.com and not Google anymore. I thought it might be OK to leave Oz.clickflv.com on my computer. But I was wrong! Soon I found my computer is totally a mess. Now there are various pop-ups flying and my computer takes a much longer time to download a webpage. The slower and slower computer really drives me crazy! How can I terminate this nasty Oz.clickflv.com? Any help would be appreciated!”
Question: How did my computer get attacked by Oz.clickflv.com?
Oz.clickflv.com is a browser hijacker that is designed to hijack browsers including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Typically, it gets on your computer together with your wanted freeware or shareware from the internet as a bundled component. It disguises itself as an extension or an add-on to get itself attached onto the target browser so that it can modify browser default settings like search engine and homepage without your detection.
