AV-Command.com is an illegitimate website that promotes fake security software such as Antivirus Soft. Trojans are used to distribute AV-Command.com and insert it into victims' Hosts files. This action will cause a victim's browser to be frequently redirected to AV-Command.com. Once a victim hits AV-Command.com, he/she will be redirected to AV-Command.Microsoft.com which is a fake security alert webpage. Scare tactics will then be used to persuade the victim that his/her PC is infected and the solution is to purchase the "licensed" version of Antivirus Soft. Do not trust anything advertised on AV-Command.com.
