Bargainmatch.com is a shopping portal and browser plugin which shows extra discounts on products which you’re searching for. They search the web for better prices or discount coupons of branded products.
What is wrong with bargainmatch.com?
The site itself is a legitimate tool to help your shopping experience; however, it has been exploited by cybercriminals. A malware called Google Redirect Virus, which is also known as a hijacker Trojan, redirects infected computers traffic from Google, MSN, Bing search engines to different sites, which sometimes doesn’t even relate to the search query, and bargainmatch.com is one of these sites where the search queries redirect. Cybercriminals earn money from redirected clicks to sites like bargainmatch.
