The developers behind System Security 2012 have been hard at work on their latest clone, System Protection 2012. This malicious rogue antispyware application was designed to stealthily enter its victims’ PCs and start a campaign of terror against the PC owner in an effort to fleece him out of his money. The supposed security tool is unable to live up to any of its promises and will not be able to protect the system against any type of threat or infection. In fact, System Protection 2012 will be the instigator behind many disturbing symptoms which it will go on to blame on fictitious infections.
System Protection 2012 will use any tactic at its disposal to facilitate its surreptitious infiltration of the system. This can include using bogus online malware scanners as well as seditious browser hijackers as part of its online marketing campaign. It has been reported that System Protection 2012 also uses infected online flash ads, as well as security updates and downloads to ingrain its infection into its victims’ PCs.
This rogue will not reveal its presence to the user until such time that it is ready to start its attack against the PC. Once it has securely rooted itself into the system, System Protection 2012 will start its attack by generating a fake security scan. This fake scan will inform the user that his PC is under attack, and that he needs to purchase System Protection 2012 in order to protect his system and stave off these vicious attacks.
To bring this point home System Protection 2012 will begin to spam the user with numerous fake security popups, such as these:
Malicious programs that may steal your private information and prevent your system from working properly are detected on your computer.
Click here to clean your PC immediately.
Warning infection found
Unwanted software (malware) or tracking cookies have been found during last scan. It is highly recommended to remove it from your computer.
Keylogger Zeus is a very dangerous software used by criminals to steal personal data such as credit card information, access to banking accounts, passwords to social networks and e-mails
There are many symptoms associated with this threat. These range from blocking the user’s access to certain system folders and hiding its contents from the user. The user will also be denied operational access to any executable program on the system, and will not be able to establish an Internet connection. System Protection 2012 will blame all of these annoying symptoms on the various falsely reported threats and will again inform the user that he needs to purchase a System Protection 2012 license in order to protect his PC.
System Protection 2012 will also make the system more susceptible to other security threats and malware infections. In order to secure your PC and to restore its protection and privacy you will need to erase System Protection 2012 immediately. This can best be achieved by making use of a powerful security tool which will not only get rid of System Protection 2012 but also protect you against similar attacks in future.
