‘Update Available’ Popup

'Update Available' Popup is a fake warning alert from the rogue program WinPC Antivirus. The text reads:

"Update available. WinPC Antivirus has detected that new threat database is available. Would you like to download and install update now? Installation is recommended"

If the user downloads and installs the update, they will automatically download and install WinPC Antivirus on their computer. Annoying pop-ups will continue with the intention of tricking the user into purchasing the full paid version of the rogue application WinPC Antivirus. It is strongly recommended that the user does not purchase the rogue program and removes the infection immediately.
