Type: Rogue Anti-Spyware


ComClean is the latest rogue antispyware, fresh from Korea! ComClean has been distributed quite actively these days. Just like its predecessors: MedicCop or HomeProtect, ComClean may infiltrate a computer system covertly, without the users’ knowledge or consent.

The changes caused by simply having ComClean on a system will alert any computer user to its actual presence within the infected machine.

Once embedded within a computer system, ComClean will bombard the user with displays of its fake scanners, pop-up advertisements and fake security notifications.

The fake scanners make use of additional and alternative malware (affiliates of ComClean) to convince the unsuspecting user that their system is in fact infected. However, important to bear in mind is the fact that the only real threat to any PC at this time – is the ComClean application itself.

- ComClean is a corrupt Anti-Spyware program
- ComClean may spread via Trojans

- ComClean may repair its files, spread or update by itself
