Antivirus 2008 DescriptionType: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs
Antivirus 2008 or Antivirus2008 is a rogue anti-spyware program created to trick users with alerts and misleading scan results into purchasing the full version of the program. Antivirus 2008 is usually downloaded and installed by a Trojan that sneaks through browser security holes, and can be found on porn websites. The trojan that comes bundled with the video codec is known as Zlob. Once installed, Antivirus 2008 will display notifications of imaginary security and privacy risks. Antivirus 2008 may also run system scans that display bogus results.
These fake alert messages have titles such as "Warning!", "Critical System Error!" or "Your Computer Is Infected" to convince you that your computer is in danger and that you must click on the "Remove all threats now" button to fix the problem. Antivirus 2008 displays these results in an attempt to deceive users into purchasing the full Antivirus 2008 program. Antivirus 2008 comes from the same makers of Antivirus 2008 Pro and IE Antivirus.
