What is Sirius XP Protection 2014?
Sirius XP Protection 2014 is the latest rogue anti-spyware, which is used for stealing people's money. It may trick you into believing that your PC is seriously infected and that you need to purchase its licensed version. Of course, paying for it is the same and throwing your money away because Sirius XP Protection 2014 has no virus database, so it is not capable of detecting or eliminating viruses. In addition, when having this rogue on the system, you can notice not only its annoying scanners and warning messages reporting about hundreds of different threats. It can also initiate slow downs, infect system with other threats and even start recording your keyboard's keystrokes. This is done for a very simple aim – trying to steal personal information, such as logins, passwords, banking data, etc. That's why you should never ignore Sirius XP Protection 2014's warning messages. If you started seeing them, it's a sign that you must scan your computer with the reputable anti-spyware, such as Reimage. This will help you to remove this and other cyber infections. Of course, you should always keep such programs as SpyHunter updated if you want to prevent infiltration of rogues, adwares, hijackers and similar cyber threats.
How can Sirius XP Protection 2014 infect my computer?
Just like many other rogues, this virus relies on several techniques used to help it spread around. Be sure that these techniques can easily trick you into downloading Sirius XP Protection 2014 to your computer without even realizing that. The most popular method, which is used for spreading this rogue, relies on fake alerts. Some of them are designed to offer free system scanners, others are set to report about missing updates. If you have been informed that you need to update your Java, Flash Player or similar program, we hope that you didn't click such ad because such notifications have nothing to do with previously mentioned programs and companies that create them. These ads are usually used for spreading such suspicious programs as adwares, browser hijackers, rogue anti-spywares and similar threats. In addition, you should try to avoid all those alerts that are offering to check computer for free with a 'free scanner'. This is another trickery used for spreading rogues like this one. If you have clicked on such notification, you may have already noticed such and similar warnings:
System security threat was detected. Viruses and/or spyware may be damaging your system now. Prevent infection and data loss or stealing by running a free security scan.
Sirius XP Protection 2014 has blocked a program from accessing the internet
This program is infected with Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen
Private data can be stolen by third parties, including credit card details and passwords.
Please, ignore such messages because they are fake and misleading. In reality, the only real virus that is hiding in your computer is Sirius XP Protection 2014.
