Even though the domain is legitimate, it usually gets installed without the user’s knowledge thanks to the so-called bundling. Once installed, i-gosearch.com may take over the default home page and change the search provider. The results displayed by i-gosearch.com may be troublesome. If the user clicks any of them, he may end up being redirected to a potentially threatening page.
