Rogue security programs love to disguise themselves as legitimate software such as Microsoft Defender. They all claim the same thing, “your machine has been infected and you should run it right away to get rid of malicious malware”. Those words are enough to make any person panic let alone your grandmother who just wanted to take a look at some new cooking recipes. As for those who have precious data, these programs can undoubtedly make you take actions that actually help it infiltrate your PC. Who wouldn’t believe when you see a legitimately looking message yelling that you are infected up to your neck. Oh and by the way they’re going to ask for your credit card one way or another.
So why is scareware such as Antivirus pro 2015 so Dangerous? Well, it’s a combination of factors that make it even more lethal than other types of Malware. The first thing is that it leaves you with an impression that you are using a reputable Security Software, which then cascades to being more vulnerable to further attacks. Just to look more authentic, a message usually appears saying it has successfully removed a virus.
The developer of the software has his own interest at heart trying to keep the program from being uninstalled in any way possible. Sometimes it stops you from visiting legitimate security software websites, so even if you are suspicious of having malware, you won’t have many options of getting rid of it.
In the end, you are being forced to pay for a product that may well be practically useless, and most likely dangerous. You could be giving your credit card details to someone who makes a living from such frauds.
Some of the more sophisticated viruses take things to the next level and even try to disable your authentic security software.
So next time you encounter security software claiming you have a handful of viruses on your PC. Consider the consequences before clicking to run a scan and unsuspectedly falling into their trap.
