This is another scary method applied by hackers to make you worried for your important information. So, as you see, the fact of presence of this Trojan horse-generated hoax on your machine is not comforting at all.

There are, in fact, plenty of invented problems, errors, bugs and troubles the rogue reports. Nothing, in fact, should be trusted by you if it is reported by this scam.
