New Rogue: TheDefend

by LS Anders on December 17th, 2009 in Rogues.

TheDefend is yet another clone of the WiniGuard family.














Like other versions of this rogue family, it will install by using a fake online scanner and then drop and report numerous fake infections. The user is asked to license the product in order to be able to remove these infections.


Ad-Aware will detect TheDefend as Win32.FraudTool.TheDefend and Win32.FraudTool.WiniGuard.
