MalwareDoctor (also clled as Malware Doc) is another rogue antispyware application. MalwareDoctor website looks legitimate and reputable but in fact, this only serves to trick visitors and to force them into purchasing the full version of MalwareDoctor. This “full version/licence” of MalwareDoctor is fabricated and does not exist. MalwareDoctor is like any other malicious antispyware program, it’s merely a scam to steal money from users who care about cyber security. Once embedded on a computer system, MalwareDoctor will continue to display pop-up messages, reports on imaginary infections and demands the buying of the full version. MalwareDoctor is not only installed under misleading pretences, infiltrating the users’ computer system without their knowledge or consent but also refers to the fact that this malware application is intensely hazardous for any computer system. Once MalwareDoctor has fully embedded itself within the computer system, it puts the system at risk of the opening of illegal network connections, the use of polymorphic tactics to self-mutate, the disabling of installed security software, modification of files and the installation of additional malware. MalwareDoctor can easily enter any computer system via security exploits and flaws, most of the times without the knowledge or consent of the user. These security risks may also collect and transmit personally identifiable information (PII) without the users’ consent thus severely degrading the performance and stability of the computer. It is largely due to all these reasons that MalwareDoctor is given a high priority security risk status by many computer analysts. MalwareDoctor should be deleted from the users’ computer system.
