VirusBursters is a corrupt anti-spyware program illegally installed to user computers by widely spread trojans, through malicious advertisements and via numerous exploits. This application is not only a weak spyware remover, but also a clone of the infamous VirusBurst risk.
We have carefully tested VirusBursters on several computers including absolutely clean machines and PCs infected with spyware and adware parasites. Test results revealed that although the program does not produce false positives and really finds some malicious parasites, it cannot completely eliminate most prevalent infections, and therefore is definitely unable to protect user privacy and system security.
Full System Scan performed on a regular modern computer storing hundreds of gigabytes of various data did not take more than one minute. The program does not check all the files, but searches only for known malware, which signatures are in its spyware definitions database. Quick Scan requires even less – only two seconds! As you know, currently, there is no such spyware remover capable of thoroughly checking the system so quickly, and this means that VirusBursters cannot be trusted.
The application refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to register and purchase the full version. Active Guard, VirusBursters real-time monitor, is also disabled.
The program is illegally distributed with the help of widely spread parasites, malicious advertisements and numerous exploits. In our opinion, VirusBursters vendor and its affiliates must be held fully responsible for such issues. We have already received user complaints stating that their computers are infecting with the VirusBursters parasite, which displays fake warning messages, downloads the corrupt spyware remover and hijacks the web browser.
VirusBursters is a successor of VirusBurst, another rogue anti-spyware. Both programs have the same look, use identical parasite definitions databases and consist of terribly similar components. Furthemore, VirusBursters end user license agreement (EULA) is a complete copy of VirusBurst’s EULA.
Such strange resemblance is easily explained. VirusBursters is actually an updated variant of VirusBurst – some minor, mostly cosmetic changes have been introduced in order to avoid detection by legitimate spyware removers. The application is even downloaded from the same web site as VirusBurst – www.virusburst.com.
VirusBursters is also classified as a clone of SpyAxe, Spyware Strike, Spy Falcon, SpyHeal, VirusBlast, Titan Shield, Spyware Sheriff and AntiSpyware Soldier.
