AntiVirus System 2011 will not stop at anything, and will do everything in its power to ensure it successfully attains this goal, even if that means causing permanent and irrevocable damage to its victim’s system.

AntiVirus System 2011 makes use of established infection principles, employing criminal browser hijacking websites to distribute its infection carrying Trojans. It also bundles AntiVirus System 2011 Trojan and malware together with legitimate security updates and software downloads from third party websites. As with most other rogueware, AntiVirus System 2011 enters its victim’s PC forcefully at the oblivious determent to the PC owner.

"Security Center Alert
