What is AVLab Internet Security?
AVLab Internet Security is a computer virus, which seeks to swindle people's money. It can be categorized as a rogue anti-spyware due to the fact that it seeks to imitate a genuine anti-spyware program. Beware that it's just another 'child' from a serious family of malwares that is called 'Braviax'. Most of the rogues from this family act in the same way, i.e. they try to scare people into believing that their computers are seriously infected and trick them into believing that they need a licenced version of the program to fix their PCs. In order to convince people, AVLab Internet Security virus shows how it loads its scanners, then supposedly scans all files and registries and finally delivers a long list of invented viruses. In addition to that, it constantly delivers fake pop-up alerts that remind about critical condition of your computer. No matter how convincing all this performance may appear, do not get tricked. The worst thing that you can do is to buy a license of this rogue. If you have already done that, we highly recommend you to contact the banker and report about this situation. Otherwise, you will loose a considerable amount of money without a possibility to get them back. By the way, buying this license may result in the further thefts from your bank account because you will reveal sensitive data straight to cyber criminals. Keep in mind that AVLab Internet Security has no virus database and is not capable of detecting viruses or even more deleting them. It is only capable of causing a serious havoc on your computer, pretending a real anti-spyware, tracking your keystrokes, slowing down computer's system and implementing other malicious activities. Therefore, if you have already noticed AVLab Internet Security virus on your computer, run a full system scan with Reimage or another reputable anti-spyware as soon as possible.
