Another dangerous infection is reported to be targeting more and more computers. Internet Protector is a program that combines different malicious techniques used by hackers to infect users` computers, and convince users that there are serious problems with their machines, which problems can be solved only with the help of the full version of the application. Internet Protector uses all the deceitful techniques and tricks which are common for malicious programs that want to beguile people into thinking they will benefit if they buy the full version of the bogus tool. From fake warnings to scary scan results, Internet Protector is an expert in misleading PC users into spending their money on the registered edition of the application. However, the truth is that this is just another scam program aimed at taking users` money and giving nothing in return.
Internet Protector will penetrate into a user’s computer without his knowledge and approval. This malicious tool penetrates into systems with the help of Trojan-based infections. It sneaks disguised as an update or video codec. The user is taken to a web page that displays an interesting video that attracts his attention. However, if the user wants to watch the video, he is told that he needs to download some video codec, otherwise, he will not be able to see the content of the video. This is exactly how Internet Protector is transferred to the targeted PC. When the user accepts to download the unknown update, Internet Protector is automatically transferred to his computer. After that, it is ready to start its malicious plan. There is also another way of spreading Internet Protector, and it is through the use of compromised updates. The PC user is told that there is an update for one of his programs. If the user agrees to install the update, he is, in fact, installing Internet Protector on his machine. In these two ways, Internet Protector is transferred to the targeted systems without the knowledge of their users.
