Do you know what Windows Necessary Firewall is?
With all the sophistication invested in fake security tools nowadays it is no wonder more and more consumers are falling victim to rogue applications such as Windows Necessary Firewall. This fake security tool actually forms part of the well documented and highly despised Fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam, and derives from the same family of despicable rogues as Windows Firewall Unit and Windows Inspection Utility.
As expected, Windows Necessary Firewall will abuse any known tactic to facilitate its forceful infiltration of its prospective host PCs. These tactics include using browser hijackers and bogus online malware scanners to exploit system and browser weaknesses. Of late it has also been reported that Windows Necessary Firewall uses flash online ads to accomplish this. Once Windows Necessary Firewall successfully roots itself in the system, it will modify registry entries so as to ensure that it runs each time Windows loads.
As a first line of attack against the PC, Windows Necessary Firewall will initiate an unwarranted and fake system scan. This fake scan will yield various false results, reporting on nonexistent threats. The interface of the fake scan will appear genuine, thanks to Windows Necessary Firewall using real Windows icons, including the popular Windows orb. Components which the fake scan will pretend to scan ranges from the following:
Private Data Protection
Hard Disk Optimization
and Memory & Devices
Although this scan may seem genuine and even helpful, users are reminded that it has been proven that Windows Necessary Firewall is actually a fake and harmful application. Symptoms associated with this infection include the inability to connect to the Internet, as well as the inability to launch any executable on the system.
In order to limit the damage this rogue will be able to cause to your system, destroy Windows Necessary Firewall immediately. This can best be achieved by using a genuine and powerful security tool.
In non techie terms:
Windows Necessary Firewall is a fake and malicious security application. Take back what is rightfully yours, and obliterate Windows Necessary Firewall straight away.
