Rts.dsrlte.com Browser Hijacker

What is Rts.dsrlte.com?

Rts.dsrlte.com is a browser hijacker that is promoted through an application called AppStein. The software modifies users' Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) homepage and default search engine settings by assigning them to certain websites (for example, Rts.dsrlte.com).
