Internet Security Protection DescriptionType: Adware
Internet Security Protection is a fake anti-spyware application from the FakeRean family that is designed by cybercriminals to scare victims into believing their computers have been infected with various malware infections. Internet Security Protection attempts to convince target PC users to buy the imaginary full version of rogueware. However, in reality, full edition of Internet Security Protection, which is advertised as a licensed version will not protect the computer from any type of malware threats. Although the name and interface of Internet Security Protection may sound and look trustworthy, Internet Security Protection will not keep the PC safe and repair computer problems. Internet Security Protection urges victims to register for the so-called licensed version and, thus, gain credit card to extort money. After installation, Internet Security Protection will run fictitious system scans and display tricky pop-up warning messages. Internet Security Protection will create false PC scan results to frighten affected PC users into thinking their computers are corrupted by numerous malware infections. To uninstall Internet Security Protection from the infected computer, ESG's malware research team advises PC users to use a legitimate malware removal tool that deals with rogue anti-spyware applications.
