Extra Antivirus Description

Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

ScreenshotExtra Antivirus is a malicious application that uses scare tactics to convince you to purchase it's full version. Trojans can be blamed for its delivery to the host system; there are also malicious websites that it can be downloaded from such as Onlineprotect-extraantivir.com, a fake online scan that returns false results stating that the user's computer is heavily infected. A repair on the website is offered upon which Extra Antivirus' setup file is downloaded.

This rogue security application is a clone of numerous other fake security tools from the FakeVimes family such as Virus Melt, Presto TuneUp, Fast Antivirus 2009, Windows Security Suite, Smart Virus Eliminator, Packed.Generic.245, Volcano Security Suite, Windows Enterprise Suite, Enterprise Suite, Additional Guard, PC Live Guard, Live PC Care, Live Enterprise Suite, Security Antivirus, My Security Wall, CleanUp Antivirus, Smart Security, Windows Protection Suite, Windows Work Catalyst.

On installation, a seemingly comprehensive scan is performed where more fictitious results accompanied by pop-ups are produced to the user and is prompted for Extra Antivirus to remove these fictitious threats after purchase of the full version. This malicious application is not able to deal with infections and is the infection itself.ScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshot
