As you know, here at BleepingComputer.com we are at the forefront of discovering and releasing guides about various Rogue anti-spyware infections that are released. We take particular notice to a group of programs that are installed via the Zlob Trojan infections.Yesterday, we have seen a new rogue anti-spyware program called AntiVirGear
start infecting people's computers over the Internet. This infection, just like its predecessors, are installed by a Zlob infection which masquerades a legitimate video or audio codec that you need installed in order to view a particular multimedia.
When AntiVirGear is installed, it immediately scans your computer and finds the malware that actually installed it in the first place. In order to clean these files, and for the most part this program cleans nothing, you need to first purchase it.
As far as I am concerned these programs are complete scams and fraud and should be under investigation by the FBI. Unfortunately, the developers of these software are not located in the USA, but rather in countries that have less favorable Internet security laws.
If you see this program, save yourself some trouble and just stay away from it.
