Windows Antibreach Patrol DescriptionType: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs
Windows Antibreach Patrol is a rogue security program. Windows Antibreach Patrol is a fake anti-malware tool that is part of the FakeVimes family. The FakeVimes' name has become increasingly common in reports issued by PC security analysts. This is because there are hundreds of fake security programs in the FakeVimes family, each of these nearly identical to Windows Antibreach Patrol. Cybercrooks have created a large number of clones of Windows Antibreach Patrol in order to avoid detection and to make it more difficult for certain security programs to detect and remove the many FakeVimes variants that exist today. Despite its name and appearance, Windows Antibreach Patrol is not a real security program. The real purpose of Windows Antibreach Patrol is to sell its good for nothing security program to untrained PC users 'proving' to them that their machines are severely infected with threats. If Windows Antibreach Patrol is installed on your computer, PC security researchers recommend a quick action to disinfect the victim's computer.
The Patrol that Brings the Enemy Inside Your Computer
PC security analysts have noted that Windows Antibreach Patrol and most of the other threats in the FakeVimes family use similar tactics when infecting computers. Among the many clones of Windows Antibreach Patrol we can mention Virus Melt, Presto TuneUp, Fast Antivirus 2009, Extra Antivirus, Windows Security Suite, Smart Virus Eliminator, Packed.Generic.245, Volcano Security Suite, Windows Enterprise Suite, Enterprise Suite, Additional Guard, PC Live Guard, Live PC Care, Live Enterprise Suite, Security Antivirus, My Security Wall, CleanUp Antivirus, Smart Security, Windows Protection Suite, Windows Work Catalyst. The following are usually the steps involved in a Windows Antibreach Patrol infection:
- Windows Antibreach Patrol infects a computer by using social engineering or through the use of threat distribution methods.
- Once Windows Antibreach Patrol is installed, Windows Antibreach Patrol makes harmful changes to the infected computer's settings. These changes allow Windows Antibreach Patrol to display fake error messages and bogus notifications meant to convince gullible computer users that their machines are infected.
- If computer users try to use Windows Antibreach Patrol to fix these supposed problems, Windows Antibreach Patrol will display additional error messages claiming that it is necessary to pay $99.90 for a 'full version' of Windows Antibreach Patrol. Of course, since Windows Antibreach Patrol is not capable of detecting or removing threats, PC security analysts are vigorously opposed to paying for its bogus 'full version' and recommend removing Windows Antibreach Patrol instead.
