NewDotNet is an adware program that associates non-existent domain-names with sponsored content. When an user enters a keyword into a browser address bar or attempts to resolve a mistaken or non-existent URL, NewDotNet redirects the user to a sponsored page. It uses an add-on plugin for Windows that makes subdomains of new.net act as new top-level domains without changing the normal DNS servers. It comprises a Winsock2 LSP that makes the extra top-level domains visible, and an IE BHO that redirects searches from the browsers address bar to NewDotNets search engines at qsrch.com and the popup-filled search.findsall.info. The BHO download updates from its controlling server at client.new.tech or upgrade.new.tech.
is NewDot bad also?
