I have posted on the fake AV issue before, and now there is a new report due on the subject. [Hey, Cider............doesn't Luis talk to you? guess he doesn't like SA wine?:drink:]
It is getting to be a very popular scam.............problem is that a lot of the stuff isn't just a fraud.... it loads backdoors and stuff :eek:
I was looking for some Samoan hot sauce the other day, and actually had a page come up on my iPod Touch, that scanned the "C:\" and reported that I had several instances of malware on it. :D
Here are some screenshots I took:
yeah...I know many people duped by this fake av....telling them they have 2300+ files infected....then the POS pops up continuosly telling them they are infected.
www.Malwarebytes.org usually cleans them up good :)
Nihil, the guys in Pandalabs never leave their bunker. Us technical guys never understand them when we speak to them. They speak an alien language.
They never sign their mails :P
But yeah , they are doing brilliant work in terms of fighting malware.
