AntivirusBest

AntiVirusBEST (AntiVirus BEST) is the latest application causing issues to computer users unfortunate enough to have been infiltrated by this rogue optimization application.

AntiVirusBEST, also referred to as AntiVirus BEST, is installed onto a computer system via a Trojan infection, or might even enter into the system when the user visits malicious and dubious websites, which contain the virus in scripts embedded within.
And no – this application will not be able to assist you any way, shape or form. This program is dubious and was designed to have harmful functionality.

AntiVirusBEST is believed by many experts to have been developed by the same creators of Antivirus 2009, a known rogue anti-spyware program.

As mentioned before, AntiVirusBEST enters into a computer system via a Trojan application, which sneaks into the system via security exploits, such as spam emails or it can be installed by other malware.

AntiVirusBEST will generate fictitious system warning alert messages, fake scan reports and fake error messages about the “infection” on the computer system.

“AntivirusBEST.
System files modification alert!

Now, what do you do if you suspect you have this nefarious application embedded within your system?
