SpywareKnight (also known as Spyware Knight) is a rogue anti-spyware application generally installed onto a computer through trojans or browser security weaknesses, without user knowledge or consent. Once active, SpywareKnight begins generating fake system scans depicting fictitious and grossly exaggerated infection results, along with fraudulent warning messages and pop-up windows. These tactics are to ensure the user believes the system is infected. The user is then prompted to purchase SpywareKnight in order to combat these non-existent threats.
