Do you know what is Smart Security?
Smart Security is yet another misleading security application, descendent from the same rogueware family as: Security Tool and Personal Security. Smart Security reports falsified and highly exaggerated system security threats on your computer and displays fake security warnings and notifications – all mere tactics to frighten and coerce the user into thinking their computer is badly infected with malware. When active, it will imitate a fake system scan and will prompt a payment for the full version of the program. Claiming to be able to remove the threats. Do not purchase Smart Security, as it is nothing more than a scam. Smart Security will not remove any infections simply because it is an infection itself. Smart Security also tends to constantly display fake security alerts and warnings about serious security and privacy issues. It is highly likely that a system infiltrated with this dubious application will display the following alerts messages informing the user about known infections. These infections are actual infections, but it may not be present in the computer system, as is suggested by the fake malware.
There are two more fake AV tools which use the misleading name of Smart Security Virus. One of the versions belongs to the infamous Rogue.VirusDoctor family and the second one should be linked to WinWebSec. Even though interfaces of these three infections are different, all of them can stop you from running certain executables and aggravate manual removal because of disabled Task Manager and Registry Editor utilities. The rogue in discussion belongs to the Rogue.WinPCDefender family and alongside aforementioned clones, it is also known for such infections as Internet Security and Spyware Protection.
Do you think that Smart Security has been “designed to protect”? This slogan appears right next to the illegally attached Windows logo on the misguiding interface of the rogue AV tool. Here you are presented with bogus PC scan reports with such fake detections as Email-Worm.Brontok and Backdoor.Win32.Scrab.p. Additionally, you are pushed to believe that the security of your computer has been breached and that you need to activate the full version of the bogus malware removal application. Note that some fake recommendations (see below) and alerts can be presented to you through the Task Bar as well.
