AntiMalware is a rogue antispyware application that looks and behaves a lot like a real antivirus program. It should be obvious from its name that it tries to be come across as a legitimate product, but there should be another word added in front of its title – ROGUE AntiMalware. Even though on the outside this program does not differ from the real thing, AntiMalware does not have an ability to detect and remove computer threats. It only wants to swindle you out of your money, and you definitely say good-bye to your financial funds if you have already paid for this scam.
The rogue enters your computer using various means of distribution. Most of the time, it hides behind a fake online malware scanner. The user might be redirected to the infected scanner page after having clicked on the flashing ad saying that there have been viruses detected in his or her computer. AntiMalware gets downloaded from that site and it installs itself into your system automatically without your permission. It also adds keys into the registry, and that allows AntiMalware to load automatically each time you boot your computer.
After the installation, AntiMalware launches a fake system scan. Judging from its interface, the user can choose between Quick, Deep and Memory scans. Needless to say, that all of these scans are worthless as AntiMalware cannot detect any viruses, but of course, it acts as if it can and the rogue generates a list of detection such as GayCodec.lookAlert, PORN.perversion.RIO, Virus.Win32.Gpcode.ak, Email-Worm.Win32.NetSky.q and many more. It indicates the alert level as high and then urges you to purchase the full version of the program.
You can see the orange purchase button at the bottom left corner of AntiMalware’s interface, telling you to "Unlock full version!" with "Easy one-click registration". Obviously, you should not do that, because with the "one-click registration", you would be revealing your credit card number, expiration date and its CVV2 code to the hackers behind AntiMalware. This way you would give them the permission to access your bank account any time, and it would be swept clean before you could even notice it.
What is more, AntiMalware can also consistently damage your computer’s system, slowing it down and flooding you with a bunch of unnecessary messages. Therefore, you have to remove AntiMalware from your machine at once, and if you cannot perform the removal manually, acquire a powerful security tool that will termiatne the rogue for you automatically.
