Live Security Platinum is a rogue security product from the Winwebsec family. It's currently one of the most active malware families on the net. The distribution model used to promite this rogue anti-spyware program has not changed over that last few months: spam emails, hacked websites and fake online virus scanners. Spam on popular social networks can be also taken into account, even though, they do all they can to prevent spam, it still exists.

Symptoms of Live Security Platinum infection

When Live Security Platinum bogus program becomes active or the trojan drops core files of this malware on the infected computer, it modifies operating system by creating new regsitry entries that block legitimate antivirus software and also drops fake files that will later be detected malicious. The rogue program may also detect safe system files as malicious, so do not delete any of the reported files manually. While the rogue anti-spyware is running, your computer will become slower and start displaying multiple system scanners and security alerts that state that there have been numerous viruses and spyware detected on the system. Example of Live Security Platinum pop up alerts:

Live Security Platinum Warning
Live Security Platinum has found viruses at your system.
We highly recommend to get license for Live Security Scanner to remove harmful software now.

Announcing about these viruses, Live Security Platinum seeks to sell its commercial version. Live Security Platinum may also use browser hijackers to implement successful redirections to its malicious websites. There, people not only purchase a totally useless and dangerous application but also give for the scammers their credit card details.

Just like the false scan results, these security alerts are just another trick being used to make you pay for bogus software. You shouldn't purchase this fake program, remove Live Security Platinum upon discovery.
