The design of computer threats improves every single day, making it hard to distinguish them from reliable security programs. The same can be applied to Internet Defender. Despite the fact that it looks like a genuine security tool, this rogue antispyware would never live up to its name or the promises it makes. If you allow this parasite to enter your computer, you will be condemning your system to definite doom. Not to mention that Internet Defender will also try its best to lay its hands on your financial funds as well.
Internet Defender is a clone of Security Defender, and it is able to sneak into your system absolutely undetected. This rogue uses a complicated distribution network which consists of browser hijackers and fake online malware scanners. You can quite accidentally find yourself in these bogus websites, which host the Internet Defender download file. What is more, this rogue seldom comes alone, for most often it arrives bundled with a Trojan infection. The reason why it is hard to tell you have received a malicious contamination at once is that the Trojan infection might seem to be performing a useful function at first. However, the first impression is deceptive, because everything that you download from suspicious sites eventually causes nothing but harm to your computer and Internet Defender 2011 is of no exception.
This rogue actually performs quite a few functions at the same time as it tries to reach its goal. Its first symptoms include endless stream of security notifications. Internet Defender makes it look like your computer is terribly infected with various viruses while in fact the rogue is a threat itself. These messages are generated to scare you and make the rogue seem like a legitimate security program. In order to look reliable it employs nice design AND terror. Nevertheless, you should never take notice of these messages, because if you do so, you will be urged to purchase the full version of Internet Defender. And buying online means you would have to disclose your credit card information which is exactly what the creators of this rogue want you to do. Having extracted credit card information from you, these cyber criminals could gain easy access to your bank account. Hence, if you don’t want to get robbed, you should ignore all of these messages you receive from Internet Defender:
