Fake Microsoft Security Essential Alerts spread malware today

It has been noticed by our anti-malware lab that fake Microsoft Security Essential Alerts take the direct part in spreading malwares today. In particular, we’ve encountered the occurrence of MultiRogue 2013 installer that popped up after this fake MSE alert window appeared. However, there are chances that other types of malwares can also be spread in such a manner. Here is how this fake Microsoft Security Essential Alert looks like:

Fake MSE alert

Microsoft Security Essential Alert
Potential threat details
Microsoft Security Essentials detected potential threats that might compromise your privacy or damage your computer. You need to clean your computer immediately to prevent the system crash.
Trojan-PSW.Win32.launch
HackTool:Win32/Welevate.A
Adware.Win32.Fraud

You should be careful when you see such faulty alerts, since they don’t come from real and legitimate Microsoft Security Essentials software. MSE (legitimate tool) doesn’t install any other programs and cannot bring any other executables into your system.

If you’ve noticed one of the examples of fake Microsoft Security Essential Alerts you should ignore its contents completely. Be very careful not to download any executables offered by this scam! Shut down this scary window and run scan with legitimate security software. We recommend you to scan your PC with GridinSoft Trojan Killer – our recommended anti-malware program.
