Apparently this is still a thing for an application to add/change search provider. Java installer/updater is asking user to install search app by Ask.com.

Java Installer Ask Search

This has to stop.

Doesn’t Oracle have enough money already? Why are they doing this?

Adobe used to do similar thing. Now Adobe offers Photoshop Lightroom when user downloads Flash Player. It goes something like this: “Your Flash Player is out of date, please update it and have a trial of Photoshop Lightroom to go with it.”
