Two new rogue anti-virus has appear to me on the Internet recently. :flowers:
One is called antivirusBEST and the other is called Personal Antivirus. This new version of Personal Antivirus has a different user interface as the older one, and different file names. I'll post a video about AntivirusBEST later on in YouTube. AntivirusBEST uses aggressive advertisements like fake BSODs, pop up errors, false positives, fake security centers, and more. My cousin is infected with a newer version Personal Antivirus, and no anti-virus has detected the application. (I will post a screenshot later.) Also, please tell Malwarebytes about these infections, since I rely on them so much to clean off our computers every single day.

We appreciate your concern about these infections. I've moved your topic out of the Breaking News forum since the information provided isn't completely new and also doesn't follow the reporting protocol for that forum which requires references and sources for the information posted.

and no anti-virus has detected the application.

An anti-virus program might not. For rogue security programs, anti-malware programs such as MBAM and anti-spyware programs such as SuperAntiSpyware are often more effective.

I'll post a video about AntivirusBEST later on in YouTube.

Just be sure not to post links to YouTube ads.

Before, I didn't see AntivirusBEST before. I didn't knew it was there. Thank you for telling me he posted already.
The USER INTERFACE is different on the Personal Antivirus my cousin has! He even said MBAM sadly didn't detected it!
