FreeDefense2u.cn is the website created and dedicated to the propagation of the aggressive rogue anti-spyware: AntivirusPlus. From the PC security viewpoint, FreeDefense2u.cn is not just a website advertising the sponsoring software – it’s a browser hijacker capable of redirecting a user’s web-surfing to this precise domain – all without any preliminary notification. On the FreeDefense2u.cn website, one will be informed about how AntivirusPlus is the “best antispyware solution”. The site itself seems enticing and quite legit, it is evident that it has been designed by professionals. FreeDefense2u.cn will recommend running the free scan, to find out if the system happens to be infected with spyware.
The scan result will always be the same – an erroneous report claiming that the system is loaded with nefarious and dangerous applications, and will attempt to coerce the user into purchasing the fake anti-spyware product. The scanners, as well as the rest of the information available on FreeDefense2u.cn are misleading. If you don’t do anything about the browser redirections to FreeDefense2u.cn, you will keep hitting this domain because the Trojans causing the diverts are still resident on the machine. It is strongly advised to remove the FreeDefense2u.cn hijacker and all its affiliated malware.
