My Security Shield DescriptionType: Rogue Anti-Virus Program
My Security Shield is a rogue security program that should not be trusted. My Security Shield can enter a system via malicious online scanners, malicious websites or sneaky Trojans. Once My Security Shield is inside a system, My Security Shield will create fake malware files and run a bogus system scan which will detect those files as dangerous malware that can only be removed with the "full version" of My Security Shield. Users are advised to ignore all security notifications displayed by My Security Shield and have the rogueware removed from your system upon detection.
My Security Shield, a new member of the FakeVimes family, was discovered near the beginning of August of 2010. Since that time, its designers have created other malicious applications very similar to that of My Security Shield which use the same aggressive tactics that push computer users into purchasing a full edition of a bogus security application. Among My Security shield family members are Virus Melt, Presto TuneUp, Fast Antivirus 2009, Extra Antivirus, Windows Security Suite, Smart Virus Eliminator, Packed.Generic.245, Volcano Security Suite, Windows Enterprise Suite, Enterprise Suite, Additional Guard, PC Live Guard, Live PC Care, Live Enterprise Suite, Security Antivirus, My Security Wall, CleanUp Antivirus, Smart Security, Windows Protection Suite, Windows Work Catalyst.
My Security Shield is also known to display a specific type of alert message that not only warns of a detected threat but says the affected PC has a 'memory access problem'. Not only is this message wrong, but it could be correct in the since that My Security Shield actually causes damages.
