What is SystemBytes Win 8 2015?
According to several bloggers who write about computers and their security, there is a virus called SystemBytes Win 8 2015 that is spread around at the moment. We don't have this example yet, so we can't claim that you should try to avoid such virus. Nevertheless, we think that we should warn you about the possible risk of this rogue anti-spyware, so we decided to write a post about it. According to people who are actively reporting about SystemBytes Win 8 2015, this is a rogue anti-spyware that hails from a well-known family of malwares called 'Braviax'. All viruses that belong to this gang can easily infiltrate computers without being noticed because they are spread with the help of trojans. Once they do what they need (enter their target PC system), they start displaying fake system scanners that are supposed to trick PC users into thinking that their computers are dangerously infected. If you have already seen any of rogue antispywares' scanners, you will know how trustworthy and genuine they look. Nevertheless, you should always think have you ever installed a program that is showing them for you. If you are already suffering from SystemBytes Win 8 2015 scanners and alerts that report about hundreds of different viruses, you should ignore them because they are fake. They are used for the only thing – trick people into paying for the fake licensed version. Please, do NOT do that if you don't want to lose your money and to reveal your personally identifiable information. In order to get rid of this or similar rogue anti-spyware, you should run a full system scan with Reimage.
How can SystemBytes Win 8 2015 infect my computer?
Such and similar rogue anti-spywares are mostly spread using fake alerts and spam. Hackers may send you an email telling you that you should confirm some purchase details or view the document for getting ability to receive the money or something. No matter how convincing such emails look, you should always be very suspicious after receiving an email that asks you to click on some link or claims that you should download some kind of attachment. Otherwise, you may be tricked into downloading a trojan horse, which can additionally install SystemBytes Win 8 2015 or other rogue anti-spyware on your PC system. Besides, we should mention about fake alerts offering free updates for Java, Flash Player, FLV Player and similar programs. If you don't want to fall for installing suspicious programs, you should go to official software's page instead of clicking on 'update now' or similar buttons. Finally, you should try to stay away from ads offering you to check your PC with the 'online' scanner because such thing hasn't been released yet. If SystemBytes Win 8 2015 virus manages to infiltrate the system, it makes required modifications and starts its misleading campaign, which is based on such and similar alerts:
Tracking software found!
