OpenCloud Security is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as OpenCloud Antivirus. It runs a fake system scan and states that your computer is infected with spyware, viruses and trojans. Rogue application displays fake security alerts and pop-ups to further scare you into believing that your PC is infected. The scan results and notifications are false, don't trust this fake antivirus software and use legitimate anti-spyware application to remove it from your computer as soon as possible. OpenCloud Security may come bundled with other malware but usually it is promoted via hacked websites that use software exploits and drive-by downloads to infected end users' machines. Scammer also use fake virus scanners to distribute malicious software, but they are probably not su effective as they used to be. Once installed, Open Cloud Security will scan your computer for viruses and then list six infections that can be only removed with a full version of this fake antispyware. The funny thing is that it displays the same infections on every infected computer. This means that OpenCloud Security has a predifiend list of infections and changes them randomly but doesn't actually scan your computer. As we mentioned, this rogue antispyware program displays fake security alerts. Here are some fake security alerts generated by OpenCloud Security:
