SaveDefense (also known as Save Defense)is a rogue anti-spyware application. Once active, SaveDefense will begin generating fake system scans that display fictitious and overly exaggerated infection results, along with fake security alerts, in order to trick the user into believing that the computer is infected.

SaveDefense, that is another member of the FakeSmoke family, is sponsored through the use of affiliated trojans and browser hijackers, much like its predecessors WiniGuard, WiniFighter, WiniShield, SaveKeep, TrustNinja, BlockDefense, SaveKeeper, SoftSafeness, TrustWarrior, SecurityFighter, Security Soldier, Security Soldier, SecureVeteran, Secure Warrior, Trust Cop, Safe Fighter, Trust Soldier, Virus Protector.
