Data Protection Description
Data Protection is a fake anti-spyware program. Data Protection propagates via Trojans and other computer malware. On infiltrating a system, Data Protection will create a start-up registry entry and attempt to disable any legitimate security applications running on the infected system. Then Data Protection will generate fake scan reports, security alerts and pop-up warnings. Users should not believe any of the security notifications displayed by Data Protection because they are all part of a scam to scare users into purchasing its non-existent full version
