Do you know what Fast Disk is?
It can be easy for even expert PC users to be duped into buying fake security software. This is because of the sheer amount of time, effort and sophistication which goes into the development of roguewares such as Fast Disk. This rogue, which originates from the same poisonous family as HDD Plus, HDD Tools, Defragmenter and HDD Low spreads via online Trojans surreptitiously entering users’ PCs without their knowledge.
Browser hijackers are employed by Fast Disk in order to forcefully deliver the Fast Disk Trojan to unsuspecting PC owners’ systems. These illicit web domains employs drive-by download tactics which only require the user to visit their site in order to be attacked by these Trojans and malware. Browser hijackers are not the only popular way Fast Disk spreads online, as it has been known that Fast Disk bundles its Trojans and malware together with genuine security updates and downloads from third party sites.
After Fast Disk roots its infection in the PC it will reveal its presence to the user through making use of various fake security notifications. These notifications will inform the user that his system is suffering from severe errors, and that he needs to act on it by paying for Fast Disk products. All of these fake alerts are bogus and without merit, and only created to panic consumers into parting with their money. Do not fall for this type of tomfoolery, and never act on any calls to action contained in these fake messages. Some of the most common fake alerts used by Fast Disk include the following:
Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk. "
Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive. "
Users who did not delete Fast Disk in time complained about increased erratic system behavior. Being unable to launch any programs or connect to the Internet was also a common occurrence. This is because Fast Disk wants to prevent the user from running or downloading a program which will not only detect, but remove Fast Disk from the system. Other victims of Fast Disk complained about being unable to access their Desktop items and poor system performance.
