With the advent of more and more sophisticated rogue security tools it has become that much more difficult for users to distinguish between genuine security applications and rubbish rogue tools like BlueFlair Anti-Virus. This rogue in particular is a destructive and harmful application designed to only rip consumers off and not offering anything of value in return. This rogue targets PCs running Microsoft’s most popular operating systems such as Windows 7, Vista and XP. What is more, this rubbish rogue forms part of the highly despised fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam, and derives from the same despicable family of rogues as Windows Necessary Firewall and Windows Custom Settings.
This rogue will enter your system through various nefarious means, and will use any tactic at its disposal to facilitate its surreptitious infiltration. BlueFlair Anti-Virus’s most popular form of infection is seditious browser hijackers and rubbish online malware scanners. Of late it has also been reported that BlueFlair Anti-Virus makes use of infected online flash ads as part of its online marketing campaign.
Once the rogue securely roots itself in the system it will edit registry entries so as to allow itself to launch each time the user logs on to Windows. It will then initiate a fake system scan which will inform the user that his system is under attack. These scans and its results are completely fictitious and should receive no attention.
As a further attack BlueFlair Anti-Virus will spam the user with persistent fake security threats aimed at panicking the user into paying for its worthless software. Some of the more popular fake alerts to be on the lookout for include the following:
