Spyware Alert Popup is a generic term for fake alerts that are displayed by fake antivirus programs. Quite often computer malware that tries to steal your money displays a number of fake security notifications. These messages claim that your system is infected or compromised by Trojans, spyware and any other malicious threat. There is not a single rogue that would not display these annoying messages. For example, Antivirus Smart Protection, AV Security Essentials and other fake AVs from the same group display the following message:
Warning! Virus detected
Threat detected: Trojan-Spy.HTML.Citifraud
Infected file: [file path]
Description: This is a Trojan program made as a fake HTML page. It is made for stealing information about clients of Citybank. Is sent as an important message by Citybank.
Please click “Removal all” button to erase all infected files and protect your PC
As you can see, in this case rogues try to convince infected users that their system is full of Trojans, and these Trojans want to steal private information. In order to terminate the Trojans users are urged to purchase the full version of rogue antispyware application, which is definitely out of question.
The same can be applied another Spyware Alert Popup message displayed by Spyware Protect 2009. The message is as follows:
Windows reports that the computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the scan you computer. Your system might be at risk now.
The most important thing is to differentiate between a real computer security system message and a fake Spyware Alert Popup. Usually, these fake pop-ups will be accompanied by the name of the fake antivirus program. It will be a program that you have not installed on your PC yourself; it is an obvious sign that you are being displayed fake security notifications by a computer infection.
What is more, if you are infected with rogue antispyware and are being displayed Spyware Alert Popup notifications chances are that your built-in security system will be disabled, and so constant security messages should be suspicious enough for you to conclude that something is not right.
