TrustNinja is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as SaveSoldier. TrustNinja uses false scan results and windows that display misleading alerts or fake warnings in order to try and convince you that your computer is infected. They do this so that you will be scared enough to then purchase the TrustNinja program. When dealing with rogues it is not uncommon for us to come across a known rogue, but when testing them they do not display any fake scan alerts as the program has not been activated by the developers. For example, TrustNinja when being tested stated that the test computer had no infections. On the other hand, the next screen it showed stated that you needed to purchase the program because there are active malware programs running on the computer. As you can see, even when the program has not been activated to show fake scan alerts it still is programmed to show misleading alerts to attempt to scare you.
