Do you know what Internet Security is?
Internet Security is a fake computer safeguard program that has been created to force innocent users into spending their money for nothing. It comes from a big nest of rogue antispyware applications that includes such notorious names as XP Deluxe Protector, Privacy Protection, Security Central and the like. Even though Internet Security has a relatively sophisticated interface that makes it seems as an integral part of your operating system, you should never trust this program, because in the end, it brings nothing but trouble.
If you are wondering how it is possible for Internet Security to enter your system, the answer is very simple – Internet. Rogues like Internet Security have a very wide and well-developed distribution system. Usually, this rogue finds its way to you via browser hijackers, fake online malware scanners and infected websites. Whenever you find yourself in an unfamiliar website on an internet, you are always just one click away from a rogue infection.
Internet Security makes it even worse, because based on the behavior of the previous versions, this one will most definitely be able to block your exe files from running and meddle with your internet connection. The rogue blocks your executables under the excuse that your programs are infected and they must be closed in order to stop the spread of the infection. However, the real reason why Internet Security does not allow to run and/or open anything is that it needs to remain in your computer for as long as possible.
It will spam you with various fake security notifications, such as:
Hidden file transfers to remote host has been detected.
has detected a leak of your files through the Internet. We strongly recommend that you block the attack immediately.
You can effectively stop these messages from appearing by “registering” the rogue with this serial number (Attention – registering the rogue does NOT mean it disappears, you still need to remove Internet Security afterwards):
If you cannot delete Internet Security on your own, the best way to deal with the infection is acquiring legitimate antimalware software that will terminate Internet Security for you automatically. However, do not forget to scan your computer after removal once more, because there might be various malicious components left, waiting for another chance to take over your system.
In non-techie terms:
Internet Security is a computer threat that looks like an antivirus program, but it really just damages your system in attempt to steal your money. You have to ignore its messages and erase Internet Security as soon as you can, using a powerful computer security tool.
