About AVG Secure Search -removal

qa-featured

This software is designed to protect users from malicious websites, by internally enforcing privations on the sites. But, the software ran some implementation issues and made the systems vulnerable to malicious intrusions, by granting access to any website to invoke methods exposed by a controller called ScriptHelperApi which exposes sensitive functionality to them. It bypasses a security feature that prompts users for confirmation before installation of ActiveX controls. The package gets self-legalized.The code gets embedded on the system when a user opens an email message of a specific HTML page. Such third party programs increase security risks, and must be avoided.
