AV-Crew.net Description

AV-Crew.net is a dangerous domain that assists in the spread of Antivirus Soft - a rogue security application. Trojans are used to surreptitiously access users' machines and modify their Hosts files thus causing the victims to be frequently redirected to AV-Crew.net. Once a victim has landed on AV-Crew.net, he/she will receive false scan reports and security alerts claiming that the system is infected and the only way to clean it is by purchasing the "licensed" version of Antivirus Soft. AV-Crew.net is not to be trusted and users should not purchase any software advertised on this website.
