There are various ways how Antivirus System can be spread over the Web, and here are several of the most serious mistakes made by users resulting in this fake AV to infiltrate the PC:
- Lack of a powerful anti-virus software installed and running on the machine on the permanent basis. Some people just don’t want to install any security programs, thinking that viruses won’t attack them. This is the mistake, in fact. The majority of threats come into computers when users don’t even realize this.
- Failure of user to update the available anti-virus software or failure of the software developers to timely update the anti-spyware databases.
- Clicking suspicious links, downloading unsecure files bundled with malwares.
- Clicking links via social networks like Facebook and even through e-mail attachments.
- Visiting and remaining at extremely malicious, sinful and adulterous sites.
There can be many other reasons, of course. Most often the reasons for malware infiltration are explained by failure of reliable anti-virus software to detect the infection on time and to terminate it before the very infiltration. As we said, sometimes users even don’t bother themselves installing security applications for their PC protection. Whatever the case might be, you’ve got to realize that Antivirus System is not the software to trust. It tells you many great things of itself. First it identifies many fake PC threats and then tells you that it will get rid of them if only you pay for the license of this rogue. Do not become the victim of this malware. It is not what it claims of itself. Do not pay for this hoax. If you have already done this mistake go ahead and tell the bank that you want to reverse the charges made via your bank account or credit / debit card.
