Malware Defense now has a new version threatening users all over the world, called Paladin Antivirus. This rogue antispyware application is very far from being a real antivirus program. Quite the opposite – it is a dangerous computer threat that can ruin your system in quest of attaining your money. That is right – Paladin Antivirus arrives with one single purpose in mind – it wants to rip you off.
Paladin Antivirus enters your system with the help of a Trojan infection. It means that even before this rogue appears in your computer, you are already infected with some kind of malware that opens back door for other viruses or simply connects to a remote server and downloads them on its own. Naturally, Paladin Antivirus installs in your computer without your permission and it performs certain changes in your system allowing the rogue to load automatically every time you boot your computer.
Once it starts working Paladin Antivirus performs a fake system scan during which it lists all the programs installed in your computer it deems to be dangerous. However, Paladin Antivirus is very eager for you to remove various antivirus programs that you might have installed. For example, the rogue might list the following programs as dangerous:
Needless to say, that you should not follow the instructions of this rogue. Even though it says that your computer is not protected, you should not listen to it, because Paladin Antivirus only wants to force you to buy the full version of the program and once you do it, your banking information will be leaked to cyber criminals who have created the rogue. In such a way your money will be stolen and your system will experience an ultimate crash.
