Do you know what System Security is?
System Security or SystemSecurity, is a fake spyware program known to be a clone of the Winweb Security rogue anti-spyware program. We know for certain that Winweb Security is a very dangerous program to have on your computer and now it seems to have a carbon copy called System Security.
Hackers have been naming rogue anti-spyware programs the strangest things lately and now they come up with the ever-so original name, System Security. Come on now, this is another ridiculous name because System Security really does nothing to improve the SECURITY of your SYSTEM.
System Security may come from the same sources as Winweb Security 2008 such as a Trojan or a website that promotes the System Security or Winweb Security rogue programs. System Security also displays many notifications which have fake messages that are used to persuade computer users to purchase a full version of System Security.
In non-techie terms:
Whatever you do, you must not purchase System Security. System Security is nothing but a waste of time and money. System Security is an imposter of a security program. It does not remove parasites nor add any additional security to your computer.
Aliases: System Security, SystemSecurity.
