We must warn you about an updated version of multi-named rogues that were noticed by our researchers in the middle of June, 2011. All these viruses belong to the Braviax family that trends to release rogue anti-spywares that have identical GUI and similar names, changing according to the OS version (XP, Vista or Windows 7). Win 7 Antispyware 2012, Vista Antispyware 2012 and other scams from this group use the same backdoor infiltration techniques that typically include Trojans for their secret infiltration. In most of the cases, users don’t even imagine that their computer was attacked and Win 7 Internet Security 2012 was downloaded to their computers. If you want to avoid such secret attacks, you should always keep in mind that you need to have anti-virus and anti-spyware licensed versions installed on your computer.
Clearly, all these products from the Braviax (win 7 Home Security 2012, XP Anti-Virus 2012, XP Security 2012 and other) are deployed by computer criminals for the only reason – to rip users off by selling them fake licensed version. Virus starts appearing on victim’s desktop and imitates scanning the system. In addition, it can be easily predicted to report numerous virues, Trojans and worms for example, and then will definitely ask to purchase its license for removal. It goes without saying that security experts recommend simply ignoring such alerts.
However, such campaigns can’t be said to be unexpected because the numbers of PC users is growing enormously worldwide. If you have also noticed XP Security 2012 or other threat hailing from Braviax family of malwares on your computer, you should immediately run updated anti-spyware program. Infiltrations like this clearly show that your OS is having some security splits, exploits and vulnerabilities, so make sure you are using the best anti-malware products on your computer.
