Security Protection is a rogue antipyware product which looks very much like a reliable security program. It is a clone of Malware Protection which has been known to plague computer users worldwide. The relational between the two rogues is obvious, because they have similar interfaces and use the same methods to achieve their malicious goals. The main aim of Security Protection is effortless financial gain.
This rogue is able to enter the computer's system via Trojan infection. The Trojan which downloads Security Protection can be caught in various suspicious websites. In order to avoid being infected by Trojans, the user must be careful about what links he clicks on, and what sites he opens. Most of the time the Trojan related to Security Protection can be downloaded automatically, and it does not need to prompt the user about the installation. Everything is done without the user's knowledge or consent.
When this rogue is installed it runs a fake system scan, "scanning" the directories which exist in the affected computer. However the errors that Security Protection "finds" are not real, therefore, one should ignore security notifications and recommendations received from Security Protection. Some of the prompts are thus:
Security Protection has found 14 useless and UNWANTED files on your computer!
Activation is highly recommended
The ironic thing is that Security Protection claims to be protecting the user from negative malware symptoms that it causes itself: exposure of credit card information, slow internet speed and system crashes are common results of Security Protection's infection. If one wants to avoid it (and one surely should), the first thing the user has to do, is close the application and don't even think about paying for it. Then it is necessary to remove Security Protection from the computer. It is up to user whether he chooses manual or automatic removal. All means of removal work as long as Security Protection disappears from the computer for good.
