They have various vulnerabilities that allow malicious third parties exploiting them and utilizing them for malware distribution. For example, Doko Toolbar comes with a flash advertisement that is embedded next to its custom search box by default. Consequently, if a malevolent third party manages to embed its own corrupted link into that flash, you would be exposed to a dangerous content that might lead to malware infection.
