There’s a campaign of malware distribution through bogus Microsoft Security Essentials Alert running these days. The purpose of this campaign is primarily spreading the rogue security software called System Care Antivirus. As you know, this is a serious form of cyber infection which has in mind to deceive many users and trick them into wasting their funds for the totally useless and helpless application which cannot really render the desired level of security protection for your computer.
This fake MSE alert looks like this and states the following faulty information:
Microsoft Security Essentials 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.
All such threats are surely invented and most probably don’t even dwell on your computer. The thing is that once the tricked user actually clicks “Clean computer” button as instructed by the fake MSE alert, the infected file is automatically downloaded. In the majority of the cases its name would be like “security_cleaner.exe”, or likewise. Running this file automatically makes your system infected with the rogue program called System Care Antivirus. To avoid all negative consequences associated with this scam please avoid running this executable (“security_cleaner.exe”) and ignore this fake Microsoft Security Essentials alert. Finally, scan your system with GridinSoft Trojan Killer to make sure your system is completely clean.
