Threat Database Malware security_scanner.exe


By GoldSparrow in Malware

security_scanner.exe is a critical executable file that is related to the bogus Microsoft Security Essential alerts. The fake alert supposedly coming from MSE urges attacked PC users to run the file named 'security_scanner.exe'. Not all security_scanner.exe files are infectious. However, if they propagate through fake pop-up alerts of MSE, they are definitely malware infections. If you receive the fake Microsoft Security Essential alert, you should reject it and rid your PC of the bogus Microsoft Security Essential alert.
