AV Protection 2011

AV Protection 2011 is a fake and harmful rogue antispyware application pretending to be a powerful security tool. This seditious rogue antispyware application, which derives from the same family of rouges as Cloud Protection, Guard Online, OpenCloud Security and OpenCloud Antivirus, enters the system surreptitiously and will remain hidden from the user’s attentions until such time that it is ready to start its attack against the system.

AV Protection 2011 will also make use of any tactic at its disposal to facilitate its surreptitious entry to the system. This may range from using bogus online malware scanners and seditious browser hijacking websites as part of its online marketing campaign.
