Computer threats reach you from any corner of the world these days. PrivacyHidden is a rogue antispyware tool, which pretends to be a beneficial program. Rogue applications are there to trick you into believing that you there is something wrong with your computer. Programs like PrivacyHidden hinder the overall system performance and then offer their services to get rid of these pesky problems, but that is dangerous scam, which will leave you broke if you are not careful.
It might be surprising to see PrivacyHidden’s interface in your computer, especially as this application is entirely in Korean. So you might be wondering, how on earth this program ended up being in your system. There can be quite a few ways for PrivacyHidden to reach you. Usually rogues come bundled with a Trojan infection. The Trojan horse arrives at your system via downloads. You might initiate the download yourself, although sometimes the download starts without your consent. This usually occurs when you enter a browser hijacker site, which is a part of the rogue’s distribution system.
Whichever way you might have acquired PrivacyHidden, you will sure to realize that something is wrong when this rogue starts sending you security notifications. What is more, the application will urge you to perform a full system scan, which is definitely fake. Since the interface is entirely in Korean you will not be able to understand what it wants from you, and most probably you will refrain from clicking on anything, but don’t be so sure that PrivacyHidden will remain docile if you don’t do anything. The program might initiate the scan itself eventually “finding” multiple threats in your computer. Were you to try and check where this rogue comes from, you might try accessing its homepage, because the address is the only line in Roman letters in the enter interface.
Just like any rogue promotional website, PrivacyHidden homepage looks absolutely reliable from the first glance, even if you don’t understand Korean. However, you should trust neither the sleek appearance of the website, nor the messages that you are receiving from this malicious applications. If you play around with it and eventually provide it with your credit card information, you will be robbed in a blink of an eye. This program does not protect your computer. On the contrary, it damages your system performance and targets your hard-earned money. Therefore, your best option is to terminate PrivacyHidden at once.
