Fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert

Postby Ivy » 2012-08-21 1:58


The fake program Microsoft Security Essentials Alert look much like legal Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus program. It take the
same interface as MSE. The fake MSE Alert pops up fake security alerting and it ask victim to pay money in order to remove the
detected threats. Fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert is mainly distributed by the using of fake online scanner and well-known
freeware or cracked shared software. Be careful to something free. Freeware or cracked shareware may bring you rogueware.
Scammers always cheat users into downloading the rogueware by marking the rogueware with popular program.

If you are unluckily infected with Microsoft Security Essentials Alert , you will get following symptoms on your computer:

1. Computer performance becomes slower than before.
2. Firewall and the regular Anti-virus program disabled.
3. Internet access blocked.
4. Unable to run any other programs.
5. Constantly and annoying fake virus infection alters saying that you are infected with “threats”. Of course, this is not true.
