SpywareAssasin review

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

SpywareAssasin was published by Maxtheater, Inc. until March 11, 2005. Federal Trade Commision took the decision to prosecute its vendor and stop marketing SpywareAssasin.

The official site warned every visitor: “you WILL eventually experience credit card and/identity theft and your computer will ultimately crash and cease working for good . . . It’s not a matter of if, but truly a matter of when.”, displayed a pop-up message, which claimed that visitor’s computer is infected with dangerous spyware, even if the system was absolutely clean. The application produced false scan reports, filled with critical objects related to spyware, adware and other malicious programs. The vendor used aggressive and deceptive advertising, pushing customers into purchasing the product. SpywareAssasin uses false positives.

SpywareAssasin is a clone of other antispyware programs, such as Adware Hitman, Protect Your Identity, Spyware C.O.P. It has similar interface and uses the same spyware definitions database. SpywareAssasin also is a knockoff of legitimate Ad-Aware antispyware.

The both application and site didn’t include privacy policy or End User License Agreement.

Domains associated with SpywareAssasin are spywareassasin.com and maxtheater.com.

Although today it is hard to find SpywareAssasin we highly recommend you to avoid it at all costs! If you are still using this product, uninstall it immediately. SpywareAssasin is illegitimate and CANNOT protect your computer!
