Program:Win32/Pameseg.U

ProgramWin32Pameseg.U is a detection for an installer which requires users to send SMS messages to premium numbers in order to successfully install certain programs and applications. The program comes bundled with certain software installation programs, and once it installs itself on the system it will display pop up messages and interfaces which informs the user that he should send an SMS message to a predefined number.

The interfaces ProgramWin32Pameseg.U uses are in a foreign language. After the user sends the SMS, he receives an activation code to activate any one of the following applications:

Adobe Flash Player
Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5
Adobe Reader
BitTorrent
eMule
Internet Explorer
JDownloader
K-Lite Codec Pack
Microsoft Office 2003
Mozilla Firefox
Ulead Photo Express 2010
vanBasco Karaoke Player
Winamp
Windows Live Messenger
Windows Media Player 11.0

The activation codes ProgramWin32Pameseg.U deliver after the user sends the SMS to the premium number is bogus, and all of the applications ProgramWin32Pameseg.U pretend to be able to activate are freeware applications anyway. You should never have to pay to activate any of these applications.

It is thus obvious that ProgramWin32Pameseg.U is nothing more than a crooked ransomware which wants its victims to pay for software that is freely available on the Internet. ProgramWin32Pameseg.U also poses other threats to the PC. It can download additional malware to the system, and execute and install it as well.

Do not get sucked in by this scam, and protect your PC against the severity and damage this threat can and will cause to your system. Get rid of ProgramWin32Pameseg.U with the help of a powerful security tool which will protect your PC against this and similar threats in future.
