Advanced Virus Remover

No Comments

Advanced Virus Remover is a rogue security application promoted through the use of Trojans, fake advertisements and online anti-malware scanners. It is advertised as an anti-virus software, but in reality, though, AdvancedVirus Remover is just another scam. The main purpose of the rogue is to scare you into thinking that your computer is seriously infected with malware, spyware and other parasites. Once, this program is installed and active, it will simulate system scan and display many bogus infections that won’t be removed until you purchase Advanced Virus Remover.

AdvancedVirusRemover will also display fake security alerts and notifications about various privacy issues. It will state that your computer is unprotected and that certain viruses can damage your confidential data. Here’s an example of fake security alert generated by Advanced Virus Remover:

“System warning!
Continue working in unprotected mode is very dangerous. Viruses can damage your confidential data and work on your computer. Click here to protect your computer.”

You should ignore such fake notifications and remove Advanced Virus Remover from your computer immediately after the first appearance. Please use the manual removal guide stated below to remove Advanced VirusRemover from your PC if it is already infected. Removal delay will only worsen the situation, because this parasite may download more malware onto your computer.

XP Virus Protection

No Comments

XP Virus Protection is another rogue anti-spyware application. It is very similar to Total Virus Protection. Probably, those two fake spyware removers were created by the same group of scammers. The main goal of this parasite remains unchanged. It uses scare tactics in order to steal money from naive users.

XP VirusProtection can be installed automatically without user’s permission. All the hard work is done by trojans, mainly Zlob or similar. Once installed and active, XPVirusProtection floods the system with fake pop-up windows and security notices. Of course all those infections are feigned, that’s why users have to ignore them. However, scammers keep advertising XP Virus Protection and suggest to a buy full version of this worthless product, because trial version has several removal limitations.
Obviously, this is a fraud. It is highly recommended to remove this parasite as soon as possible, otherwise important private data can be at great risk.

Microsoft virus downs French jets

No Comments

French fighter jets were ground bound after military computers were attacked by a Microsoft virus, says Agence France-Presse.

They couldn’t download flight plans because their databases were infected by the virus, which they’d been warned about several months ago.

“At one point French naval staff were also instructed not to even open their computers,” says AFP, going on:

Microsoft had warned that the “Conficker” virus, transmitted through Windows, was attacking computer systems in October last year, but according to reports the French military ignored the warning and failed to install the necessary security measures.

The French newspaper Ouest France said the virus had hit the internal computer network at the French Navy.

Jérome Erulin, French navy spokesman told the paper: “It affected exchanges of information but no information was lost. It was a security problem we had already simulated. We cut the communication links that could have transmitted the virus and 99 per cent of the network is safe.”

The French navy admitted it had to return to telephone, fax and post, says AFP, adding:

“Naval officials said the ‘infection’ was probably due more to negligence than a deliberate attempt to compromise French national security. It said it suspected someone at the navy had used an infected USB key.”
