SaveDefense Description

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. The user is then prompted to purchase and download the commercial version of SaveDefense in order to combat these threats.

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.
