This rogue makes use of various established forms of infection to gain surreptitious entry to its victims’ PCs without their consent. These range from using bogus online malware scanners to seditious browser hijackers. It has also been reported that OpenCloud Security makes use of infected online flash ads as part of its online marketing campaign.

This is done not only to further annoy and panic the user into paying for OpenCloud Security, but also to prevent him from running or downloading an application which may be able to get rid of OpenCloud Security. Each time the user attempts to launch an application, he will be presented with the following fake security alert:
