With all the effort that goes into the design and development of fake security websites touting harmful rogue security tools it can be easy to fall victim to the seditious lies employed by websites such as Softwarean.net. This fake security website is directly involved in the online marketing campaign to promote the well known and highly despised rogue antispyware application AntiVira AV.
Softwarean.net acts as a browser hijacking website that forcefully redirects users’ browsing and search sessions to its compromised homepage. Once there, the user’s browser and system susceptibilities will be exploited so as to allow Softwarean.net to root the AntiVira AV Trojan in the system. It’s no secret that browser hijacking domains such as Softwarean.net are dependent on affiliate marketing in order to turn a profit.
All literature contained on Softwarean.net is designed to fool the consumer into parting with his hard earned money for their useless and harmful software. This means that PC owners need to accept everything contained on Softwarean.net as extremely suspect and without merit.
Throughout the entire website users will find seemingly genuine looking Microsoft Windows badges which endorse AntiVira AV, and which states that this rogue security tool is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. This is further deception on the part of Softwarean.net as Microsoft is in no way affiliated with Softwarean.net in the least.
The website lists AntiVira AV products with its prices as follows:
Softwarean.net also states that it offers its consumers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on their products. This guarantee is as utterly worthless as the software being sold on Softwarean.net, as users will never be able to claim a refund for their money from Softwarean.net.
At the end of the day the responsibility remains with you to protect your PC against threats such as Softwarean.net and AntiVira AV. Invest in a genuine security tool which will not only destroy Softwarean.net Trojans and malware, but also offer adequate protection against future similar attacks.
