Windows Antibreaking System Description
Windows Antibreaking System has an attractive start-up screen and a main GUI that looks like a genuine security application with plenty of features. However, these are all for show; Windows Antibreaking System is a fake anti-virus application in the FakeVimes family of rogue security programs. Rogue security programs like Windows Antibreaking System are a kind of malware infection that attempts to steal a computer user’s money by making them believe that their computer is under attack and then trick them into purchasing a fake security application. The FakeVimes family of rogue security programs is nothing new to PC security researchers, considering that it has been active and constantly updated since 2009. Some characteristics specific to the FakeVimes family include its ability to disable the file processes of well-known legitimate security programs and use file names made up of three random characters.
A recent batch of malware in the FakeVimes family, which includes Windows Antibreaking System itself, was released in 2012 and is notorious for being bundled with a dangerous rootkit component in the ZeroAccess family. There are dozens of clones of Windows Antibreaking System in this recent batch, including programs like Windows Processes Accelerator, Windows Component Protector and Windows Cleaning Tools. While most security programs have no problem handling the Windows Antibreaking System infection itself, due to the well-known nature of this family of fake security software, the rootkit that it uses to attack a computer system is much more difficult to deal with. Typically, it is necessary to use an anti-rootkit tool before attempting to remove Windows Antibreaking System with a reliable anti-malware program.
