Cloud AV 2012

Cloud AV 2012 is a computer threat that comes from a formidable family of rogues and it will destroy your system if you do not take this infection seriously. The previous versions of this rogue include OpenCloud Security and Cloud Protection. It is especially obvious from the fact that the interfaces of these rogues are practically identic and they even report on the same parasites that Cloud AV 2012 supposedly “detects” in your computer.

This rogue usually comes together with a Trojan infection, so if you have Cloud AV 2012 acting up in your computer, you’d better get yourself a powerful security tool and scan your system for any other infections. It would be of no surprise if you would detect other parasites as well, because backdoors and malware droppers are the common cause of the Cloud AV 2012 infection. Rogues like Cloud AV 2012 seldom come alone, so your computer can be easily exposed to a whole variety of threats.

So what happens when you get infected by Cloud AV 2012? It is simple – the rogue performs a fake system scan “finding” numerous threats and then advices you to remove them altogether using Cloud AV 2012’s services. It “detects” such programs as Trojan.JBS.Ghost, Trojan.Downloader.JS.Agent, Net-Worm.Win32.Kido.ih and so on. Were you to make a research on these parasites, you would find out that they are not made up, but they definitely are not there in your computer as Cloud AV 2012 only wants you to trust it, so that it could steal your money.

Do not think of registering to use Cloud AV 2012 services, because for that it requires you to buy the full version of the program and this is where you encounter the main point of the infection – money extortion. Were you to pay for the registration, your account would be exposed to further exploits of cyber criminals. Instead of paying for this absolutely worthless program, make use of the registration codes to “activate” Cloud AV 2012:
