Tech-ava-soft.org is a website that is used to promote AVASoft Antivirus Professional, a fake anti-virus application that is part of a well known scam. This rogue security program is often distributed through illegal methods such as forcibly installing the malware by taking advantage of vulnerabilities on the victim’s computer or through Trojan infections obtained from malicious email attachments or social media spam links. However, a third method exists: computer users may download and install the malware themselves. Tech-ava-soft.org has the appearance of a website promoting a legitimate security product. Tech-ava-soft.org includes typical information contained in these kinds of Web pages, such as testimonials and lists of features. However, the productTech-ava-soft.org promoted is actually a malware infection used to steal money from inexperienced computer users.
Once AVASoft Antivirus Professional is installed, AVASoft Antivirus Professional may be very difficult to remove. ESG security researchers note that malware associated with Tech-ava-soft.org may block access to your files and applications, cause browser redirects (to the Tech-ava-soft.org website typically) and disable features like System Restore and the Windows Task Manager. It will do all of this ‘for your own protection’, claiming that it has found an infection. However, these symptoms are actually caused by this fake anti-virus program attempting to protect itself from removal with a legitimate anti-malware application. If AVASoft Antivirus Professional is installed on your computer or if you are being directed to the Tech-ava-soft.org website repeatedly, it is important to use a real anti-virus program to disinfect your computer.
AVASoft Antivirus Professional is used to steal money from inexperienced computer users. To do this, the rogue anti-virus program imitates a legitimate anti-virus program. However, it uses intrusive tactics that can quickly become irritating, such as running a full scan of the victim’s computer whenever Windows is launched and displaying a large number of error message and false detections. The fact is that these kinds of rogue antivirus programs have no way of detecting or removing malware. Rather, they are simply designed to mislead PC users, making them believe that their machines are seriously infected so that they will pay for an expensive ‘upgrade’ to the fake anti-virus program. This supposed upgrade is promoted on Tech-ava-soft.org. Apart from being a waste of money, it is also important to note that paying for this ‘full version’ gives criminals access to your credit card information, potentially exposing you to identity theft and forms of credit card fraud.
