The lengths developers of rogueware go to successfully tout their worthless software continually sink to even lower depths, as consumers not only have to worry about genuine threats compromising their systems but fake ones too. Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a, a fake parasite used by Palladium Pro which emanates from the well known Think Point uses this bogus threat as part of its assault on PCs.
The Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a is actually a fabricated threat which in reality does not exist. PC infected with Palladium Pro will receive various pop up messages which state that their PC has been compromised by Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a. The fake security alert will contain a call to action, which will instruct the user on how to remove Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a from the system. PC owners are strongly advised to not act on any correspondence they receive from Palladium Pro, as with any rogue this fake security application is dependent on user interaction in order to successfully attain its dubious goal. One of the notorious fake alerts containing the Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a threat reads as follows:
"Microsoft Security Essentials Alert
Note the grammatical and stylistic errors contained in the fake alert. This should already act as a warning sign and lead you to suspect that the notification is suspect at best.
Do not fall for the criminal extortion employed by Palladium Pro. Delete Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a and remove Palladium Pro from your PC before it causes the inevitable devastation it has become synonymous for.
