New Rogue: PCSecurity2009

by LS Anders on July 9th, 2009 in Rogues, Security Alert.

PCSecurity2009 is a new rogue, but it is behaving in the same old way.

Once installed, it will also drop several bogus files onto the system. These files will then be detected as malicious. To remove these fake infections, the user will need to license the software. It will also randomly hijack Internet Explorer and claim that it needs to license PCSecurity2009.

The rogue will also hijack the security center and add a link to license AntiSpywareHome 2009 (probably a typo from the bad guys).
