There are many browser hijackers online annoying PC users with its annoying tactics, but few as malicious and seditious in intent as Acantispy.com. This hijacker forms a strategic part of the highly despised rogue antispyware application Antimalware Go. Redirecting users forcefully to their compromised landing pages, Acantispy.com makes use of various forms of drive-by download tactics and other underhanded practices in order to root its Trojans and malware into users’ PCs.
Although at first glance Acantispy.com might come across as a genuine security tool, upon closer inspection the truth of the matter is that it certainly is not. Spelling and grammatical errors abound on this site, and other aspects which point to Acantispy.com’s suspect intentions. This treacherous hijacker was created solely to promote Antimalware Go and to facilitate its purchase and distribution.
You cannot believe anything on this site, as it is all developed to trick you into believing Antimalware Go is a genuine security tool and to steal your money. In a further attempt to fool users into thinking it is a legitimate website Acantispy.com displays Windows badges throughout its entire site. These badges are meant to convince users into thinking Acantispy.com is endorsed by Microsoft. This is utterly false as Microsoft has no affiliation whatsoever with either Antimalware Go or Acantispy.com.
Acantispy.com lists 3 different products for Antimalware Go on their site, all three with different prices. Antimalware Go Easy sells for $49.95, and offers a supposed 3 moths of updates and support. Antimalware Go Advantage offers 6months of updates and supports, and sells for $59.95. Their last product sells for an incredible $69.95 and offers lifetime updates and support.
