WebDiscover has an official website, from which it can be downloaded, but often its installation takes place automatically with that of other programs, in which it is incorporated (in a subtle way or, even, without the user being able to express his explicit dissent).

For the above reasons, WebDiscover is actually classified as adware, i.e. a particular type of malware, ie "bad" software, which has the purpose of hijacking the victim on advertising content.
