Once the Amazon Shopping Assistant extension is installed it will read and change all your data on the websites you visit, change your search settings to a website of its choice, and change your search settings. This will cause the homepage, new tab page, and default search engine to be replaced with another website.

If a victim did not install Amazon Shopping Assistant but find it installed on their browser it is likely that the threat was installed alongside additional threats.
