Internet Security 2014 Description

Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

Internet Security 2014 is one of the many fake security programs that exist to scam inexperienced computer users. Like its predecessors from the FakeRean family, Internet Security 2014 is part of a convoluted scam that is used to attempt to steal your money. If a supposed security program named Internet Security 2014 is installed on your computer, beware! ESG security analysts strongly advise that you ignore all messages and 'warnings' issued by Internet Security 2014 and instead use a genuine anti-malware tool to erase this infection from your computer.

The Internet Security 2014 rogue security application is designed to trick PC users and make them purchase a 'full version' of this fake security program. There are many ways in which Internet Security 2014 forces computer users to do this, the most common of which is convincing the victim that their computer is severely infected. Internet Security 2014 pretends to be a real security program, running a fake scan of the victim's computer and using an interface that is highly authentic looking. However, regardless of the actual state of the infected computer, Internet Security 2014 will claim to have found dozens of viruses, Trojans, worms and other problems. Internet Security 2014 uses alarming messages and system alerts to trick the computer user into believing this lie. Internet Security 2014 will also cause infection symptoms deliberately, such as preventing the victim from accessing security software, files or browsing the Internet normally. However, as you will see, trying to use Internet Security 2014 to fix these supposed problems is useless.

How Internet Security 2014 Steals Your Money

Whenever the affected computer user attempts to use Internet Security 2014 to fix these supposed problems, this fake security program will claim that Internet Security 2014 needs to be updated. Of course, this supposed update is not free and will generally cost the victim quite a bit of money. Even worse, purchasing a fake 'update' for Internet Security 2014 allows the criminals responsible for Internet Security 2014 to gain access to your credit card information since it can be used to get hold of your money or identity.
