Security System

Security System is a fraudulent Trojan warning message which claims that you might have a possible spyware infection in your computer. It distinguishes TrojanDownloader.XS as the main threat with a high risk level. Security System says that you need to update your computer’s antivirus program in order to remove the “detected” spyware. Naturally, the message is fake and the prompt to update the computer safeguard is generated, because Security System promotes Antispyware-reviews.biz website and rogue antispyware programs that site distributes.

The reason why this message appears on your screen is that Security System wants to convince you that you are seriously infected so that you would end up buying PC-Antispyware or PC-Cleaner rogue antispyware programs. Naturally, this is just a scam designed to steal your money leaving your computer potentially harmed to the point of no return.

There are two basic ways for Security System infection to get into your system. First, it can get in bundled together with real Trojans (such as Trojan Zlob). Secondly, it can be downloaded via fake video codec like Video ActiveX. You encounter these fake codecs online, when a fake video player tells you that you cannot play the video unless you download the codec. The only things you download, however, are various infects like Security System.

When Security System warning messages starts plaguing you, it can tremendously slow down your computer processes and even cause critical Windows errors. That is why you are recommended to remove Security System as soon as possible. Get yourself a reliable security tool which will intercept the infection and delete it for you automatically.
