Bodcall.com – Details

So, one question you’re asking yourself is how you got affected by this redirect in the first place. There may be several options. First, the Bodcall.com redirect could be a result of the installation of freeware which was bundled with potentially unwanted programs which cause redirects, generate ads and affect the browser’s performance.

This technique is known as software bundling and its purpose is to trick you into installing undesired programs generally released on platforms for software and similar websites.

Where the potentially unwanted program typically resides is in the installers of these apps. Most of the times the information about a PUP’s presence is hidden and you need to access the Advanced or Custom configuration options in order to uncover it. But unchecking additional and possibly unwanted software is not always efficient as adware, hijackers and redirects always find a way into your system.

Also note that all commonly used web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Opera and Safari) could be affected by Bodcall.com.

Keep in mind that this redirect may also be keeping track of your online activities and sending the data to its servers. Such data records tend to contain both personally and non-personally identifiable details. Most hijackers and PUPs are known to collect the following type of information from affected users:

  • Visited URLs and websites
  • Browser’s home page
  • Search queries
  • Search queries on the visited web pages
  • Type of used browser
  • Operating system type
  • Internet protocol (IP) address
  • Geographic location
  • The domain name of current Internet service provider (ISP)
  • Diagnostic information which describes how their Services are operating on the system

Unfortunately, all data records could be disclosed to third-parties of unknown origin or what’s even worse, they could be released on dark web forums, security researchers warn.
