Do you know what System Security 2012 is?
System Security 2012 is the new clone of System Security 2011, deriving from the very same criminal and despicable developers. This rogue does not have the ability to detect or remove any type of threat from the system, but will instead open a door to the system allowing many other dangerous and harmful malware infections to gain entry into the system. It was never designed to be of any value to a PC but only to rip consumers off and enrich its criminal developers, while offering nothing of return to its victims.
This rogue will enter the system without the user’s acknowledgement or permission using various sly tactics. These ranges from browser hijacking websites making use of drive-by download tactics to fake online malware scanners. It has also been reported that System Security 2012 makes use of infected online flash ads as a part of its online marketing campaign.
The user will remain unaware of the presence of System Security 2012 on the system until such time that the rogue starts its attack against the PC. The rogue will start its attack by initiating a falsely generated security scan which will pretend to scan the system. Once the scan completes it will report on numerous fake security alerts as being present on the system. It will also go on to inform the user that the only way to save his PC will be to pay for a System Security 2012 license. Users are urged never to pay for any System Security 2012 product.
Soon afterwards the user will receive various fake security popup messages informing him of more dire threats being present on the system. Some of the fake alerts to be on the lookout for include the following:
Warning infection found
unwanted software (malware) or tracking cookies have been found during last scan. It is highly recommended to remove it from your computer.
Keylogger Zeus is a very dangerous software used by criminals to steal personal data such as credit card information, access to banking accounts, passwords to social networks and e-mails
Symptoms initiated by System Security 2012 include users being unable to launch applications on the system as well as being unable to connect to the Internet. Extremely poor system performance and the increase in erratic system behavior have also been reported.
