Despite the continued efforts of the online security industry to educate its consumers, many users are still falling victim to rogue security software. One application in particular taking advantage of naive PC owners is NewClean, a ridiculous software mimicking legitimate security software. It would seem as though Internet users are still falling prey to scams such as NewClean at alarming rates.
NewClean’s power lies in its seemingly legitimate UIs. Offering all the legitimate and expected elements of genuine security software at first glance, inexperienced users blindly instill their trust in this program to protect their PCs. This is dangerous seeing as NewClean offer zero benefit to any PC, having no diagnostic or healing powers.
This sophisticated cyber scam is cleverly promoted online, making its presence well known to its target group. Users infected with NewClean will recall many times where unsolicited system scans on their PCs were performed by this rogue, presenting them with fake scan results. NewClean will go on to present its victims with fake security notifications reporting on dramatic and serious infections on their PCs. These infections are entirely fabricated, and only a product of malicious intent designed to panic users. It wants users to pay for NewClean in order to have these fabricated threats removed. Do not fall for this trickery, and never pay for any variant of NewClean’s products or services.
NewClean is a dangerous application which will only harm your PC and put your privacy and safety at risk. In order to minimize the risk posed by this shameful scam, delete NewClean immediately. Do not believe any correspondence received from this rogue, and eliminate NewClean using genuine security tools at the first opportunity.
