IC Spyware Scanner

by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

IC Spyware Scanner uses ridiculous false positives. We have tested it on absolutely clean computer. Both standard and additional system scans were performed. Standard scan took only several seconds. During it the program didn’t find any malware. However, additional scan was a way more “successful”. IC Spyware Scanner managed to detect 329 spyware entries. All of them actually were harmless files related to fully legitimate applications. For instance, popular anti-spyware tool HijackThis was detected as unknown hijacker. Various files associated with NVIDIA video card drivers, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Adobe Photoshop, mIRC chat program, Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Microsoft Office, Opera web browser, Winamp media player, Miranda instant messenger, PowerQuest PartitionMagic, VMWare, WinRAR archiver, ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm firewall and many other legitimate products were recognized as different spyware and adware threats. Furthermore, even applied genuine Windows updates and essential operating system components were shown as dangerous parasites. See a screenshot provided below.

IC Spyware Scanner cannot remove any objects it detects. Although it is a freeware program, it was designed only to scan the system, but not to eliminate found threats.

The program comes with outrageous license agreement:
“You agree that the Company may collect, retain and use information about you, including your name, e-mail address and credit card information. The Company employs other companies and individuals to perform functions on its behalf (i.e., fulfilling orders, analyzing data, processing credit card payments, etc.). They have access to such information about you as they may needed to perform their functions. The Company publishes a privacy policy on its Web site, which it may amend from time to time at its sole discretion. You should refer to the Company’s privacy policy prior to agreeing to this Agreement for a more detailed explanation of how your information will be collected, stored and used by the Company.”

Apparently IC Spyware Scanner may be a spyware itself. See another screenshot.
