What can be said about this threat

Pop-ups and reroutes such as PhaseSearch are commonly occurring because of an advertising-supported program set up. Hurried freeware set ups usually lead to adware contaminations. Not everyone will be aware of the symptoms of a contamination thus, not all users will come to the conclusion that it is indeed an ad-supported application on their systems.

However, that does not mean that ad-supported applications are harmless, you being rerouted to a damaging page might lead to a malware contamination. We highly encourage you eliminate PhaseSearch before it may do more harm.
