Fake anti-malware products
(Rogue Programs)

In this new series of videos, They show what can happen to your computer when you visit a risky site. In each video presentation you will see scams, malware, adware and other online threats in action.
Fake Anti-Malware Products

There is an epidemic of fake anti-malware software on the Internet. Marketed under hundreds of different names, such as VirusRemover 2008 and XP Antivirus 2009, this type of rogue software scares users by giving false spyware alarms and then tries to deceive them into paying for removal of non-existing malware.
The new WOT video shows what happens when a legitimate site gets infected and redirected to one of these bogus anti-malware scams.
