Security Central Image

Security Central is a rogue anti-spyware application originating from the same family as Spyware Protect 2009, Antivirus System Pro and Barracuda Antivirus. Due to affiliated trojans infiltrating the computer via security exploits, Security Central is installed onto the system and from there, begins launching various fake security alerts. Along with the fictitious and sometimes grossly exaggerated infection reports supplied by the counterfeit system scans, these tactics ensure the user is intimidated enough into purchasing the fake spyware remover Security Central in order to combat these non-existent threats.ScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshot
