As developers behind rogue antispyware applications become more sophisticated in their approach towards marketing their scareware, PC owners now not only have to worry about real threats, but fake ones too. The fake Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen infection is the perfect case in point. This fake Trojan forms part of Internet Security 2011’s attack on a system, in an effort to convince the user his system has been compromised.
If you come along the Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen fake security notification which warns that your system is infected, it can be easy to become panicked. That is exactly what the developers behind Internet Security 2011 aims for. Users should not pay any attention to fake alerts which warn about Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen being present on their system, as it’s all part of the Internet Security 2011 assault.
Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen will supposedly infect various files on the system, and will appear to be a serious threat to the health and well-running of the system. Internet Security 2011 will generally generate this fake security pop up each time the user tries to launch an executable on the system, which further cements the belief that the system is compromised. The Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen fake alert reads as follows:
“Attention! Threat detected!
One very important point to follow is to never act on the calls to action contained in the Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen fake security warnings. This is the ultimate aim behind Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen and all of Internet Security 2011’s fake alerts, as with any rogue the success behind its assault is entirely based on user interaction. This means that Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen and Internet Security 2011 will not be able to victimize the user and steal his money unless he interacts with the rogue.
Other fake alerts employed by Internet Security 2011 beside Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen include:
“Attention! Network attack detected!
“Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.”
Once again as with Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen, users should not believe any correspondence received from Internet Security 2011, and should obliterate Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen and Internet Security 2011 from the system.
