In this newsletter we would like to emphasize your utmost attention to the fact of presence of another rogue anti-virus in the present world wide web. It bears the name Personal Security Pro and, based on the statistics of keywords, is quite a threatening one for many computers world wise. First of all, it is worth mentioning that this malware is very similar to Personal Shield Pro virus. They have the same interface and many other things in common. Especially when it comes to infecting computers with their malicious files and scamming users. Nevertheless, in spite of its such convincing name, the fact is that this is simply the next clone of fake security applications originating from malware and virus family. The scam is especially dangerous since it enters into the PC without user consent or approval and then tries to behave as if it is some kind of a legitimate antivirus tool.
Keep in mind that this trojan is a totally fake security software which leads users to a scam practice where it suggests users to effect the payment for the so-called full version of it. You might be curious as for why would someone purchase this program if it’s a scam and a fake tool. Our answer is this: Personal Security Pro applies rogue approaches in order to trap its victims. Initially, it penetrates into a specific workstation, then it says it’s some great anti-spyware tool that has identified viruses and malwares on your computer, then it suggests to you to make the payment (some type of virus removal fee) in order to have your system restored. Sadly, so many innocent PC users tend to believe into this fraudulent campaign and they make the payment for bogus “Personal Security Pro” aiming that it would help them to resolve their issues but, in fact, the real problem is the Personal Security Pro virus itself. Therefore, it’s recommended to get rid of it instead of trusting this rogueware. Just as we said, it is the direct clone of Personal Shield Pro virus, so you may find more information in the Internet about how severe this program is and what damage it does to the infected computers.
Please don’t forget that both Personal Security Pro and Personal Shield Pro are the fake programs which may enter your computer through malware-spreading websites by means of trojans dropping it.
