What is Windows ProSecurity Scanner?
The number of the members of the Rogue.Virus Doctor family is rapidly increasing, because new members are regularly produced. Windows ProSecurity Scanner is one of them. This fraudulent program is a clone of Windows Internet Booster, Windows Daily Adviser and other malware of the same kind. Windows ProSecurity Scanner was created to present imaginary threats and scare the Windows users into buying a full Windows ProSecurity Scanner version, which supposedly eliminates the threats. Therefore, this counterfeit application should be removed, because the PC’s system will be thrown into disorder.
The disorders of the system are of various kinds, and they are designed to persuade the users to believe that the system is affected by the threats. For instance, the Windows Task Manager and Registry Editor are hidden from the users so that there is no chance to check what processes are running in the system and what changes are done in the Registry. Moreover, the users cannot connect to the Internet and download a security tool, because some executable files responsible for the security of the system might be disabled by Windows ProSecurity Scanner. These disorders are created to be a result of the “infections” that supposedly sneak into the system.
In addition, Windows ProSecurity Scanner informs the users about different risks and security issues which are supposed to be intimidating. For example, it displays simulated errors and pop-ups which appear very frequently. Some of the cases of the deception are presented:
Warning! Virus Detected
Threat detected: FTP Server
Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.
As it is a bluff, the notifications should not be trusted. More importantly, the system’s scans and the threats presented by Windows ProSecurity Scanner should not be trusted as well. The scans that appear on the screen and list various infections are made to scare the users into purchasing a fake full version of the rogue. According to Windows ProSecurity Scanner, the “threats” will be removed when the application is activated:
Please click “Remove all” button to erase all infected files and protect your PC
When the user clicks the “Remove all” button, he/she is redirected to the purchase form where personal banking details are required to be entered. This element of the deception is very important for the cyber criminals who can track what data is entered in the areas of the purchase form. Banking details such as account number, passwords and CVV or CVV2 are registered by the crooks; therefore, do not make money transfers but delete Windows ProSecurity Scanner from the system.
