Live Security Professional belongs to the WinWeb Security and is used to steal money from inexperienced computer users by making them believe that their computer was infected with numerous Trojans and viruses. Live Security Professional will usually enter a computer through social engineering tactics or through typical malware delivery avenues (such as attack websites or malicious email attachments). Once Live Security Professional is installed on the infected computer, Live Security Professional makes changes to the infected computer's settings that allow Live Security Professional to display fake warning messages and system alerts.

Live Security Professional pretends to be a real security program and displays numerous fake error messages and alerts claiming to have found severe infections. When the computer user tries to use Live Security Professional to fix these supposed malware threats, this fake security program claims that it is necessary to pay for a 'full version' of this rogue security application.
