Antivirus 2009 is also known as Antivirus2009 | Type: Malware
Antivirus 2009 is a new rogue anti-spyware program. It is also a clone of Antivirus 2008 - also a rogue, and one that's produced more clones than any other recently. The list of these clones is long: System Antivirus 2008, Ultimate Antivirus 2008, Vista Antivirus 2008, XP Antivirus 2008 etc.

Like any other of it's predecessors, Antivirus2009 uses trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo, to spread. These trojans lurk in porn/warez websites disguised as video codecs, and, upon entering the system, floods the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection. While the system at hand may indeed be infected, Antivirus 2009 will inform the user of this regardless of whether it's true or not. The point of this disinformation is to convince the user he is infected and therefore needs an antispyware program to dispose of the threat. The user might click on one of the popups or notifications, all of which claim they will take him to a legitimate security tool, but try to make him purchase Antivirus2009's "licensed version" instead. Antivirus2009 may redirect web browser to antivirus-premium-scan.com, webscannertools.com, googlescanners-360.com, livesecurityinfo.com, antivirusonlivescan.com, bestantivirusscan.com, antivirus-best.com, internetquarantinesite.com, premiumlivescan.com and secureclick1.com websites that sell the malware. Some of these website are not only fraudulent, but they are also malicious. they are capable of installing additional malwares.

Antivirus 2009 is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it's websites using your HOSTS file: Webscannertools.com Related files: av2009install.exe, av2009install_0011.exe, ieupdates.exe, antivirus 2009.lnk, winsrc.dll

Noadware also works to catch it!

Malwarebyte's software did a great job of catching Antivirus 2008 when it infected my machine.

You should tell people that in order to remove Antivirus 2009, one must PURCHASE a copy of your program. This is just another scam, with another address of whom to send the money to!!!!

Oh my god,
thank you so much for posting this.
My computer is totally infected, and I almost got caught up in the scan, because I believed in the threats (the antivirus thing looked so real!)

I am just so thankful.

How come everytime I go to any website, this "Antivirus 2009" tells me it's unsafe?
It does that for every single website! This is getting to be really irritating.
It's just totally a stupid scam that says you have all these infections.

Thank you so much for putting the removal software up!
