Do you know what Windows Security System is?
Windows Security System is the latest infection that was released this morning by cyber criminals that have possibly released Antivirus Protection, Security Monitor 2012, Security Solution 2011 and others. This cunning infection enters the computer’s system without the user’s consent and, once installed, attempts to convince him or her that the system is infected. Although the malware provides the user with a fake scanner, there is no option to delete the results of the scan. Instead, the rogue offers to buy its simulated full version so as to remove those infections.
Once the scan of the system is completed, Windows Security System presents a list of infections which are categorized as critical. The threats are presented with their .exe or .dll extensions as well as with “descriptions”. For example, the malware displays such viruses as update.exe, usp10.dll, spuninst.exe and others. Please, do not try to delete them, because they are nonexistent, and, instead of trying to get rid of bogus viruses, you should remove Windows Security System.
To make you buy the full version of Windows Security System, the infection highlights it by saying that:
Trial Version” means a version of the Software to be used only to review, demonstrate and evaluate the Software for an unlimited time period. Converting to a full license is easy.
Here, the user is supposed to press the Activate button, which you should not do, because you will be directed to its purchase form where you will be asked to expose your sensitive data such as your credit card number, CVV, address, etc.
Moreover, ignore all notifications presented by the malware. Below, you will find a bogus notification that may appear on the screen if you are infected with Windows Security System:
Security Center Alert
To help protect your computer, Security Center has blocked some features of this program.
Once you have found that your PC is infected with Windows Security System, delete it from the system as soon as you can. The removal will be easier if you register the infection so that it will not produce bogus notifications and allow you to access different parts of the system to remove its components. If you are not skilled at dealing with malware, remove Windows Security System automatically. Install a powerful antispyware tool, and the removal procedure will be performed for you without any damage. Note that activation of the infection is recommended in either case.
