It’s not only infecting your laptop and attempting to provide you with suspicious pop-ups, but it’s also damping your workstation’s defense. Do you realize now, that soon after the infection the OS became littered with suspicious tools, appearing out of a clear sky? It is so because adware modified the browser settings so that it became fragile against all sorts of threats which it could easily avoid earlier while the right settings were on.

 

Let's figure out, what is Woxx.xyz doing in on your workstation. In the first place, immediately after getting into user's OS, Woxx.xyz deactivates the browser's protection.

This dummy search system is the core of the scam, but it won't be effective without Woxx.xyz, which paves the way for it. Except that, Woxx.xyz is able to modify basic security settings. For one, it makes you able to download anything without your affirmation and disables the note of warning.
