It has become increasingly more and more difficult even for experienced users to distinguish between gamine and rubbish security tools like Security Defender. This is because of the level of sophistication the developers behind Security Defender and similar rogues invest in their rubbish applications. Security Defender enters the system surreptitiously and will not relent until the user either decides to pay for its worthless software or remove Security Defender from the system completely. Despite what Security Defender would like its prospective victims to believe, it certainly does not have the ability to detect or remove any type of threat from the system.

Browser hijacking websites and bundled third party website downloads constitute some of the more popular forms of distribution for Security Defender. Other tactics include making use fake online malware scanners and infected online flash ads.

Once Security Defender manages to root itself into the system the rogue will start its attack by generating a fake system scan. This fake system scan was designed to inform the user that his system is being attacked, and that he should pay for Security Defender in order to protect his system. Following this fake scan, Security Defender will spam the user with various falsely generated security messages in the form of annoying pop up messages:

Security Defender Firewall Alert
Suspicious activity in your registry system space was detected. Rogue malware detected in your system. Data leaks and system damage are possible. Please use a deep scan option.

Harmful software detected
Security Defender has detected malicious software that may cause crash of your computer. Click Remove All button to remove them now.

Security Defender
Viruses have been found in your system. We highly recommend you to get license for Security Defender to remove immediately harmful software.

Of course none of these fake alerts can be trusted, and users should never believe anything received from Security Defender. Symptoms reported along with the Security Defender infection range from increased erratic system behavior, poor system performance and blocked Internet connections.

Security Defender will be responsible for a lot of damage to your PC. Limit this damage and destroy Security Defender permanently with the help of a genuine and powerful security tool. This investment will also offer adequate protection against similar attacks in future.
