What is SecuriDex?
At first sight, SecuriDex looks like a regular media player, but later it begins to act in a manner that is not expected from a legitimate program. After launching the program, users notice a notification that informs about malicious software on their computers. The warning keeps appearing while the program is working or when you start it again. Every user should know that the alert is fake and to get rid of it, the application should be deleted from the system. The software cannot infect your computer with malware, but the notification could be cyber criminals’ attempt to access your private information or extort money from you. Because of this suspicious behavior, the application is classified as potentially unwanted program (PUP).
How does SecuriDex work?
Once the application is installed, it launches itself and all the media player’s features seem to be working correctly. Later the program connects to the Internet without your permission, and it downloads data that shows the fake notification. The alert says that there is malware on your computer and that you must call the technical support with the given telephone number. Since we know that the notification is warning you about fake malware, we can assume that the people who answer the phone will only pretend to be from technical support. There are many ways these cyber criminals could try to scam you. For instance, they could offer you to buy an expensive tool that would remove the malware. Also, they could suggest that you allow them access your system, and they will erase the threat themselves. In this case, they could try to collect your private or sensitive information. That is why you should avoid calling this number. Besides, you do not know how much you might be charged for every minute you spend talking with the fake support member.
Where does SecuriDex come from?
SecuriDex is available to download on securidex.com free of charge. According to the website, it is reliable and safe to use software. However, the fact that the program was developed as an open source application does not make it very secure. Open source software can be modified by anyone who has the required skills, and that person may not have the best intentions. Since the program is already known to perform suspicious activity, it would not be smart to keep it any longer.
