Once it has intercepted the system users password, AntiSpyware Protector will transmit this to the creator of the Trojan.

AntiSpyware Protector is advertised through the use of advertisements that pretend to be online scanners. AntiSpyware Protector will then prompt the user to download and install AntiSpyware Protector, so as to attempt to create a solution and fix the user’s computer. These scanners, though, are also scams and have no way of knowing what is running on your computer and thus can be ignored.
