Spy Defence

by Alice Woods - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

Spy Defence, also known as SpyDefence, is a corrupt anti-spyware program that uses false positives as goad to purchase.

We have carefully tested this program on absolutely clean computer that was never infected with spyware, adware or any other parasites. However, Spy Defence managed to find 5 malicious files, 2 harmful registry entries and 4 registry keys identified as riskware.

Further analysis revealed that absolutely all detected objects were actually harmless components of installed fully legitimate software including popular security-related applications. For instance, files td.exe, tlink.exe and arj.exe are parts of Assembler Laboratory, an integrated development environment. The ssupdate.exe file is an essential component of SUPERAntiSpyware, a popular spyware remover. Registry keys identified as spyware and riskware are associated with applications like Adobe Photoshop, Prevx1 and Antiy Ghostbusters. See screenshots provided below.

We have also used Spy Defence to scan a badly infected machine in order to find out whether this program is able to find and remove real parasites. Results are disturbing. The so-called spyware remover found only 4 malicious files, 5 registry keys and 40 tracking cookies, while there were hundreds of malware-related objects in the compromised system.

The program refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to purchase the full version.

It should be noted that SpyDefence’s update function does not work as intended. It fails to connect to the Internet and download latest updates and causes the program to crash instead. See another screenshot below.

Spy Defence is a clone of Adware Punisher, ADWare Bazooka, Hit Virus, Remedy Antispy, SpyCut, Spy iBlock, SpywareDisinfector, SystemStable and The Spy Guard. All these programs have identical interfaces and consist of terribly similar components.

The application’s official web site is www.spydefence.com.

Spy Defence is definitely unable to protect your system and your privacy. Avoid this product!
