Internet Security 2013

Internet Security 2013 Description

Internet Security 2013 is a rogue security program. These kinds of malware infections are fake anti-malware applications that are designed to trick inexperienced computer users with a well known online scam. Internet Security 2013 has numerous clones with names such as Internet Security 2012 and Home Security 2011. It is important to note that, despite the fact that Internet Security 2013 imitates the appearance of legitimate security programs, there is absolutely nothing that is real about Internet Security 2013. This fake anti-malware program is not designed to detect or remove malware infections. Rather, Internet Security 2013 is part of a Trojan infection that wreaks havoc on the victim's computer in an attempt to convince an inexperienced computer user to pay for a fraudulent upgrade to this bogus security program.

How Internet Security 2013 Infects a Computer


Once the dangerous Trojan behind the Internet Security 2013 infection enters a computer, Internet Security 2013 makes dangerous changes to the infected computer's settings. As part of its attack, Internet Security 2013 ensures that Internet Security 2013 will run automatically whenever the infected computer starts up. As soon as the affected user logs into the infected computer, Internet Security 2013 displays the results of a fake system scan, claiming that the victim's machine was infected with various dangerous viruses and Trojans. Afterward, Internet Security 2013 continues to pester the computer user with numerous frequent error messages, all of which are fake and designed to scare inexperienced computer users into seeking an 'upgrade' for Internet Security 2013. Fake error messages associated with Internet Security 2013 will claim that a keylogger infection was found, the infected computer was 'hacked' and the victim's computer is in danger due to a Trojan working in the background and a severe malware infection that could potentially damage the infected computer.

If the computer user attempts to use Internet Security 2013 to remove these nonexistent malware threats, Internet Security 2013 will display other error warnings asserting that it is essential to 'upgrade' to a full version. Of course, this supposed upgrade is not free and will usually require the computer user to provide his or her credit card details to the criminals responsible for Internet Security 2013. Instead of doing this, ESG malware researchers advise computer users to use a real, reputable anti-virus program to detect Internet Security 2013 for what Internet Security 2013 is and remove Internet Security 2013 completely from the infected PC.
