Security Shield 2011

Security Shield 2011 is a fake rogue antispyware program. It looks and pretends to be legitimate antivirus software, but it is a dangerous threat to your overall computer security and your financial funds. Security Shield 2011 is a clone of previously released rogues, such as Security Tool, System Tool, Security Shield and others. The main reason why this rogue has been created is that its creators want to make easy profits, making use of unsuspecting computer owners.

This rogue has many ways to enter your computer, so you have to be careful in general while browsing the internet. Not clicking on suspicious links, or links which lead you unfamiliar websites, unless you are sure of their legitimacy. However, sometimes you can simply run out of luck, because the rogue can also be distributed using the “blackhat SEO” tactics, when the cyber criminals manage to place their sites at the top of search results list and users click on them totally unaware of the danger behind it.

Once the rogue gets into the system it configures it so that the program would load together with the Windows and it its blue interface pops into action, performing a fake system scan. As a result Security Shield 2011 finds 45 threats, including Virus.DOS.Mono.1063, Worm.Win32.Fujack.a ant the like. These are real parasites, for example, Virus.DOS.Mono.1063 has been first detected back in 1997. The number of parasites detected varies every single time the scan is performed. For example here is the message that Security Shield 2011 gives you, when it detects 21 threats:

Warning! 21 infections found!
During the last scan malicious programs (8), viruses (8), adware (0), spyware (4), tracking cookies (1) were detected.
Possible harm includes:
System crash
Permanent Data loss
System startup failure
System slowdown
Internet connection loss
Virus spreading on your network

It is strongly recommended that you clear your computer from all the threats immediately.

However, despite all the messages and notifications, the threats do not reside in your computer, because Security Shield 2011 wants you to THINK you are infected so that you register for the full version of the “antivirus” program.

Security Shield 2011 will tell you that you can remove the threats from your computer only if you activate the program, if you click on "Remove" button, you will receive this message:

You need to activate Security Shield on your computer to perform this action. Do you want to activate Security Shield now?
