How We Research About Rogue Software

The rapid growth of fake anti-virus programs causes the victimization of more and more computers every day. Hackers constantly update their con-products and invent new ones in attempts to gain profit from unsuspecting users. Sometimes the rogues they develop are so craftily made that one cannot distinguish them from legitimate AV software, and they manage to creep into machines and sometimes destroy them completely. This is why our team is devoted to informing you about such threats – to prevent you from spending your money on a program which can only crush your computer.

Our researchers are the ones to detect the newly-born rogues. They examine them on their test computers and provide us with their characteristics. As soon as they notice a rogue, we describe all its features to you by making a post on our website and try to give you usefull prevention or solution tips. Thus we hope to raise your awareness of rogue infections and make it possible for you to recognize such scams as soon as you spot them or get rid of them once they have managed to settle in your computer.

Rogue creators mastermind new malware pieces every day, what is worse, however, is that they constantly improve their level of cunningness. Some of their fake programs even manage to "sense" our Virtual Machines and do not load on them to make the tasks of our researchers even more difficult. They keep up the good work thanks to employing various research strategies, including reverse physiology since hackers usually target specific audience and use a specific type of compromised websites. Thus our team does not seize capturing rogues by tracing their steps online.

We use different keywords to find the villains, having in mind their most widely used techniques and online places for distributing infections - file sharing websites, flash updates, keygens, porn websites. We kindly ask you to contact us in case you come across a malicious website or download, so that we can examine it and inform other users of its presence on the Internet.
