EnigmaSoft Threat Scorecard
EnigmaSoft Threat Scorecards are assessment reports for different malware threats which have been collected and analyzed by our research team. EnigmaSoft Threat Scorecards evaluate and rank threats using several metrics including real-world and potential risk factors, trends, frequency, prevalence, and persistence. EnigmaSoft Threat Scorecards are updated regularly based on our research data and metrics and are useful for a wide range of computer users, from end users seeking solutions to remove malware from their systems to security experts analyzing threats.
EnigmaSoft Threat Scorecards display a variety of useful information, including:

Protection Center is distributed by Trojans that can surreptitiously infiltrate targeted computers. Once Protection Center is inside a computer system, it will display fake security alerts and simulate a bogus system scan which will report that the system is badly infected with malware. The fake security alerts will mention threats such as Exploit.Win32 to convince users of the urgent need to purchase the "licensed version" of Protection Center to clean their computers from the supposed threats. Protection Center is unable to detect or remove any type of computer threat therefore users should not waste their money on this useless application.
Protection Center is a fake anti-spyware application from the FakeCog (CoreGuard) family, the same family of other rogueware such as PC Protection Center 2008, Protection System, CoreGuard Antivirus 2009, Paladin Antivirus, Dr.Guard, User Protection, Your Protection, Digital Protection, Data Protection, Defense Center, AnVi, PC Protection Center, Virus.DOS.RogueAntiSpyware, Fraud.Defense Center, Malware Protection Center, Adware.PCProtectionCenter.
