New Rogue: PersonalSecurity

by LS Anders on December 1st, 2009 in Rogues, Security Alert.

PersonalSecurity is a new rogue. It is a descendant clone of XPAntiVirus.

The rogue will detect a list of false infections and ask the user to buy a license before it can clean the machine. It will also present a fake version of Windows Security Center, yet another way to try to get the user to buy a license.

Ad-Aware will detect this rogue as Win32.FraudTool.PersonalSecurity and Win32.FraudTool.XPAntiVirus.
