Anti-virus-best.info Description

Anti-virus-best.info is a browser hijacker promoting the rogue anti-spyware application known as AntivirusBEST. Due to affiliated trojans infiltrating the computer via security exploits and modifying the browser settings, web-surfing activities are redirected to the Anti-virus-best.info domain. Once here, the computer is subject to a fake online scan that displays fictitious and sometimes grossly exaggerated infection results, all in order to intimidate the user into purchasing the fake spyware remover AntivirusBEST.
