MaCatteAntivirus, which is also called MaCatte Antivirus, MaCatte Antivirus 2009, MaCatteAntivirus2009, grants you the same protection as its predecessors. This rogue anti-spyware program enters into a computer while the user attempts to install a bogus Video ActiveX Codec. This malicious software tends to be advertised via online advertisements. The installation process begins at quite respectable websites, where the creators of these dubious applications, hackers, proceed to publish their forbidden content (forbidden or not approved by the publishers of these legitimate websites).

For instance, they may post an advertisement inviting the user to read particular breaking news. It has been found out that instead of reading the promised news, the unsuspecting user will be forced to get familiar with MaCatteAntivirus descriptions and are then coerced into downloading its trial version. Alternatively, MaCatteAntivirus is downloaded covertly, with the help of Trojan infections. It is recommended to remove MaCatteAntivirus and all its affiliated components, to ensure the safety of any PC system.
