Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

ScreenshotThose interested in PC security will find Internet Security familiar, since Internet Security is a variant of a very common rogue anti-virus program. Internet Security is one of the many fake anti-virus tools that are installed as a consequence of a FakeRean Trojan infection. This dangerous malware infection is designed to enter a computer system without alerting the computer user and then installing fake security programs in order to allow criminals to take advantage of gullible computer users. Basically, the Internet Security scam consists in selling useless fake security programs to inexperienced computer users that may not to know any better.

ESG security researchers strongly recommend ignoring any alerts and messages that Internet Security displays and instead remove this fake anti-virus with a legitimate security program. If you made the mistake of purchasing a useless registration code for Internet Security, steps should also be taken to contact your credit card provider to explain the situation. Failure to remove Internet Security immediately will almost certainly result in other malware threats making their way onto your hard drive, as well as making you strongly eligible for identity theft or other kinds of banking fraud.

Preventing an Internet Security Infection

An Internet Security can be quite convincing. This rogue anti-virus program's interface imitates the interface of Windows Security Center very closely. Internet Security uses the same layout, color scheme and design, as well as trademarked logos from Microsoft and Windows in order to lend an appearance of legitimacy to this fake security program's scam. Do not fall for the scam, this application has no way to remove or detect viruses; it was designed simply to display constant error messages in order to alarm the user. Two things can ensure that you never have to deal with an Internet Security infection:

  1. Install reliable security software on your computer system, especially a real-time malware scanner that can intercept the Trojans that install Internet Security before they manage to carry out their nefarious deed.
  2. Be extremely careful with what you download and install on your computer system. While many malware infections can attack your computer system through brute force and take advantage of security vulnerabilities, the vast majority of malware infections are actually downloaded and installed by the users themselves.
