Trying to mislead people into thinking their computers are infected, XP Security typically starts with fake security notifications and pop-up ads reporting infections. Its presence is manifested through fabricated system scanners as well that imitate scanning of the system actions and are programmed to announce the same dangerous virus "detected". However, the only truth is that these cyber threats do not really exist on the infected PC or are simply invented by the same rogueware, so it is highly recommended ignoring them.
All this trickery of XP Security is done with one reason which is to get people scared into purchasing its commercial software. It’s a common money swindling strategy for all fake anti-spywares, so if you have already been infected with one of them, you will know how such scams must be threatened. Do not trust alerts and scanners and delete XP Security from your computer.
According to these who have been already infected by this malware, XP Security is caught through Trojans viruses that use security vulnerabilities found and this intrusion usually stays unnoticed. So, please, keep your security software updated and avoid XP Security. If you have XP Security’s nasty trialware on board, don’t waste your time and remove the scamware ASAP:
