Privacy Protection Suite
Privacy Protection Suite (or Privacy Protection Suite v2.1, PrivacyProtectionSuite) is another rogue anti-spyware application, and even though the website of Privacy Protection Suite looks legitimate and reputable, this may only serve to further trick visitors and coerce them into purchasing the full version of Privacy Protection Suite. This “full version/license” of Privacy Protection Suite is fictitious and does not exist.
Privacy Protection Suite is, as like most malicious anti-spyware programs, merely a scam to entice money from people who care about cyber security. Once embedded on a computer system, Privacy Protection Suite will continue to load pop-up messages, reports on imaginary infections and demands about buying the full version.
Privacy Protection Suite is a clearly malicious application consisting of harmful functionality which is utilized to ensure a PC user’s entire network remains compromised and possibly endangered. Privacy Protection Suite is not only installed under deceptive pretences, infiltrating the user’s PC without their approval or knowledge, but also refers to the fact that this malware application is intensely dangerous for any PC system.
Privacy Protection Suite is particularly damaging as once it has fully embedded itself within the PC’s system, it puts the system at risk of the opening of illicit network connections, the use of polymorphic tactics to self-mutate, the disabling of already installed security software, modification of system files, and not forgetting the installation of additional malware. The fact that Privacy Protection Suite can easily enter any PC system via security exploits and flaws, most times without the user’s interaction, means that it is that much easier for Privacy Protection Suite to enter the system and ensure the system’s security is greatly compromised. Furthermore, these security risks may also collect and transmit personally identifiable information (PII) without the user’s consent thus severely degrading the performance and stability of the computer.
It is largely due to all these reasons that Privacy Protection Suite is given a high priority security risk status by many computer analysts. The best way to deal with the threat of Privacy Protection Suite is to simply remove it from the affected PC system.
