XP Security Plus 2013 doesn’t differ substantially from Win 7 Security Plus 2013 previously described by us. This is another scareware from the family of MultiRogue 2013, also referred to as FakeRean or Braviax clan. The installer of the same malware produces various names of fake anti-spyware programs depending on the type of the operating system installed on the attacked machine. Thus, XP Security Plus 2013 malware is only possible to be launched on computers with Windows XP installed.
Needless to mention, XP Security Plus 2013 doesn’t act like legitimate security application. First of all, its installation is carried out in a hidden basis, so users cannot actually trace the moment this hoax enters the machine. In fact, it doesn’t even ask for user’s permission or approval. Thus, it comes to computers without taking into consideration the opinion of users. Furthermore, this scareware amends your system tremendously in order to be launched automatically each time you turn your computer on. Keep in mind that you will eventually see this program each time you want to do something important on your computer. This is done by the malware by means of adding some registry entries or modifying some existing ones.
Once XP Security Plus 2013 is successfully installed and running on your computer it immediately begins imitating the behavior of some anti-virus software. First, it runs the bogus scan of your system and later on reports the bunch of fake infections. All of them aren’t real, so this information presented by the rogue must not be trusted by you.
The aim of XP Security Plus 2013 is to persuade users to buy its fake license, which is absolutely helpless when it comes to removal of real security threats.

It will not even warn you about their infiltration attempts or possible security leaks in your system.
