Internet Security Plus Description

Type: Possibly Unwanted Program

Internet Security Plus is a fake anti-virus program. Internet Security Plus is another member of the FakeRean family that is used to try to convince inexperienced computer users that they must 'upgrade' this fake security program, losing their money and disclosing the credit card data by doing so. Internet Security Plus is installed on the victim's computer without the computer user's consent and does not have the ability to detect or remove malware. If Internet Security Plus is displaying error messages or supposed system scans of your computer, it is a clear sign that Internet Security Plus is not actually an anti-malware program. Rather, Internet Security Plus is the kind of malware infection that should be disabled immediately.

How the Internet Security Plus Scam Works

Typically, Internet Security Plus will enter a computer after the computer user has been exposed to other malicious content, often by a social engineering attack involving a malicious email attachment or embedded link. Once Internet Security Plus enters a computer, Internet Security Plus is designed to alter the victim's computer settings, giving itself permission to display error messages and run automatically at start-up. When the infected operating system is launched, Internet Security Plus runs a fake system scan. This will claim that the victim's computer is severely infected with malware. When the computer user attempts to use the infected computer normally, Internet Security Plus will also display numerous error messages and prevent the computer user from opening files and applications, claiming that they are infected with malware.

Removing and Protecting Yourself from Internet Security Plus

If you try to fix these supposed infections with Internet Security Plus, you will encounter additional error messages. It is important to remember that Internet Security Plus as well as its clones do not have the ability to detect or remove malware due to the fact that they are a kind of malware infection themselves. Instead of fixing these nonexistent problems, Internet Security Plus will try to convince you that you need to purchase a 'license' to use Internet Security Plus, which is usually quite expensive and requires that the computer user disclose personal financial information. Instead of following Internet Security Plus' instructions, ESG malware researchers advise computer users to remove this threat completely with the help of a reliable anti-malware guard that is fully updated and to follow online safety guidelines to prevent future infections.
