I had an ugly run-in with scareware last night, but I’m not sure what left me more annoyed: The dreaded Antivirus Pro 2009 scareware or McAfee, my anti-virus software provider.
First, my PC was overtaken by Antivirus Pro 2009, which is a rogue anti-spyware application. In a nutshell, Antivirus Pro starts automatically when you log on to your computer, creates fake malware and then holds the PC hostage. In addition it hi-jacks Internet Explorer and pelts you with porn sites (sprinkled in with a little Viagra for good measure). Simply put, Antivirus Pro 2009 tries to scare you into registering the software.
