Paladin Antivirus Description

ScreenshotPaladin Antivirus, a rogue anti-virus application, is distributed by Trojans that can sneak it onto a computer without a user's knowledge or permission. Once inside a PC, Paladin Antivirus will launch a fake system scan and claim to detect numerous computer threats that can only be removed with its "full" version.

Paladin Antivirus was created by the same authors of roguewares from the FakeCog (CoreGuard) family such as PC Protection Center 2008, Protection System, CoreGuard Antivirus 2009, Dr.Guard, User Protection, Your Protection, Digital Protection, Data Protection, Protection Center, Defense Center, AnVi, PC Protection Center, Virus.DOS.RogueAntiSpyware, Fraud.Defense Center, Malware Protection Center, Adware.PCProtectionCenter.

Paladin Antivirus often creates a registry entry that will ensure that it is loaded with every system start-up. Paladin Antivirus will also locate a list of legitimate security applications and direct the user to uninstall them. These security applications include: F-Secure, Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, Avira AntiVir, NOD32, avast! and more. All scan reports or security alerts displayed by PaladinAntivirus should be ignored.
