Security Scanner 2012
The fact that rogues come in packs is a common knowledge so it is of no surprise that such programs as Security Shield and Security Tool already have another clone called Security Scanner 2012. This new rogue antispyware application is basically no different from its predecessors, because it poses as a legitimate computer safeguard program while in fact the only thing it wants is your money. Due to the sophisticated interface Security Scanner 2012 might indeed resemble a real registry cleaner or an antivirus scanner, but it cannot provide protection and you must terminate Security Scanner 2012 immediately.
The moment Security Scanner 2012 enters your system it launches a fake system scan. The program can start without your consent, because upon the installation it adds a subkey to the Registry and this allows the rogue to start up together with the operating system. When Security Scanner 2012 performs the fake scan it “detects” various types of infections – rogues, backdoors, worms, and it even gives the supposed files names such as cscdll.dll for Backdoor/Win32/Generic or nmft.dll for Win32/Zotob. Even though some of those names belong to real computer threats, the scan results are obviously fake and you should focus on removing Security Scanner 2012 – not the non-existent threats.
As far as the stealing is concerned, Security Scanner 2012 is able to do that by forcing you to pay for the full version of the program. That happens when the user falls for its lies and tries removing “viruses” with Security Scanner 2012. When one tries that, one is greeted with the following notice:

Needless to say, that you should NEVER purchase the license, because then you would only expose your financial information to a third party, allowing the cyber criminals to access your bank account whenever they want to. However, it registering Security Scanner 2012 would help you to remove it, so in order to “activate” the rogue, use this activation key:
The rogue will stop sending you fake security notifications and you will be able to terminate Security Scanner 2012 a lot faster. If you do not have the skills to delete malware on your own, do invest in a powerful computer safeguard tool that will terminate Security Scanner 2012 automatically and your computer will be protected from similar threats in the future.
