What does ssfk.exe do?
Research has shown that ssfk.exe usually ensures that you cannot delete a browser hijacker from your system. Cyber criminals do not want that you remove ssfk.exe and the browser hijacker itself because browser hijackers generate traffic to different websites. In addition, there is a possibility that the publisher receives money from pay-per-click websites. In order to drive traffic, they provide users with various third-party ads and sponsored links. After users click on them, they are redirected to other websites that are, unfortunately, not always trustworthy. As can be seen, there is no point in keeping a browser hijacker. Thus, we recommend uninstalling ssfk.exe and other files that allow this threat to work properly.
