Recently a new malware has been developed by online criminals. Its name is Disk Antivirus Professional. Sounds pretty convincing, isn’t it? Well, the self-appraisal of this program doesn’t not match with its real abilities to defend your PC from virus aggression. In other words, this is not the program that can protect your PC from cyber exposure and vulnerability to malware. Disk Antivirus Professional is the direct successor of System Progressive Protection scam previously described by us.
Disk Antivirus Professional acts very aggressively and pushy in reaching its goals. This is a rogue anti-spyware utility attempting to deceive users with its many tricks. The program represents itself as some powerful tool to defend your computer from online threats. However, the thorough analysis of how this application acts on your system is giving us some facts that bring us to the conclusion that it is the malicious application, the virus that wears the garments of a sheep, whether inside it is like a wolf that came to destroy your system integrity.
The installation of Disk Antivirus Professional is not authorized by user. You do not actually participate in the infiltration process of this program. It installs itself in a hidden (secret) manner that isn’t visible to users. So, nobody can actually terminate the moment when the hoax gets into your system, and thus sooner or later its malicious files and registry entries are in your system. The malware initiates its processes to imitate the scanning of your computer. The fake scan is followed by a bogus report about plenty of malwares supposedly detected on your computer.
Please do not trust any deceitful information you hear from Disk Antivirus Professional rogue. All its fake warnings, alerts, popups and other notifications have nothing to do with the truth. Their only goal is to make users believe their system is in danger. Then the hoax plans to convince users to buy the fake and helpless license of this program, also called as activation code. This registered version of Disk Antivirus Professional cannot render what it promises. The threats it reports of are all but invented. Still, when real infections do attack your system, this application will never protect your computer from them. Be very careful. Do not therefore listen to the deceitful statements of Disk Antivirus Professional hoax. Please, do not waste your funds – do not buy this malicious program!
