OpenCloud Security

OpenCloud Security Description

OpenCloud Security Screenshot 1According to the findings of malware analysts, OpenCloud Security’s name actually is the opposite of its true functions, which include creating fake warning messages that warn you about infections that aren’t present, browser hijackers that block safe websites while redirecting you to dangerous ones and, of course, blocking genuine security products to prevent you from removing OpenCloud Security from your PC. However, suitable anti-malware products and standard removal techniques can help you shut down and delete OpenCloud Security, which should never be purchased, given the fraudulent nature of OpenCloud Security as well as the criminal history of the company that sells it.

OpenCloud Security is a clone of OpenCloud Antivirus and other rogue security products from the FakeScanti family such as Your PC Protector, Wolfram Antivirus, Home Security Solutions, BlueFlare Antivirus, AV Protection 2011, Security Guard 2012, AV Security Essentials, System Protection, Super AV 2013, Sphere Security 2012, AV Protection Online, AV Guard Online, Super AV, Security Guard, OpenCloud AV, System Protection 2012, Milestone Antivirus, Wireshark Antivirus, AV Protection 2012, Sysinternals Antivirus, Rogue.Data Restore, AV Security 2012, Cloud Protection, Win 7 2012, Internet Security Guard, AV Secure 2012, OpenCloud Antivirus and Cloud AV 2012.

Clearing Out OpenCloud Security’s Fake Virus Scarecrows

All of these rogue security products pretend to be unique and potent anti-virus and security tools, but none of them, including OpenCloud Security, have any of the features that they claim to possess. In fact, malware researchers have found that OpenCloud Security uses a great deal of error messages that are entirely fraudulent in nature. OpenCloud Security will also fill its system scan results with a range of serious infection alerts, but these results can also be disregarded, since OpenCloud Security has no real system-scanning functionality that malware researchers have been able to find.

Opencloud Security has been found by our technicians to return a plethora of parasite results.

Opencloud Security offers itself for purchase at a price of $52.95 but when a victim of Opencloud Security purchases Opencloud Security, they are mysteriously charged a larger amount of $72.85. After purchased, Opencloud Security magically claims that all of the previously detected threats have been cleaned off of the computer. Basically, Opencloud Security attempts to run a complete scam on computer users not only by claiming the so-called infections have been cleaned off after purchase, but by charging a larger amount than stated for a bogus security program.

A sample of the Opencloud Security order conformation email:
Dear customer,

Amount: 72.85 USD.

What You May Need to Fight Through Before OpenCloud Security Can Be Vanquished

OpenCloud Security infections have also been found to cause other problems that are common for rogue security programs. Although these attacks may make it more difficult to delete OpenCloud Security, proper anti-malware strategies and software will still allow you to circumvent them and remove OpenCloud Security. The code ‘DB038748-B4659586-4A1071AF-32E768CD-36005B1B-F4520642-3000BF2A-04FC910B’ may also be used to fake an activation for OpenCloud Security, if necessary.
  • OpenCloud Security will exploit proxy server settings to hijack your browser, and may redirect you to dangerous websites, redirect you away from safe sites or simply shut down your ability to surf the web at all. malware researchers have noted that you may often see the following error screen in the latter of these incidents:
    “Proxy server is refusing connections”
  • Security software may be blocked by OpenCloud Security, although disabling OpenCloud Security will let you regain access to software that was blocked. Renaming program files to generic names (such as ‘iexplore.exe’ or ‘explorer.exe’) may also dodge this attack in mild cases.

Above all else, until you’ve removed OpenCloud Security, be careful to avoid giving information or money to the criminals that market OpenCloud Security, since doing this will throw away your money for absolutely no gain.

    this is just a mess. Still cannot remove it on my own. Tried everything.

  • Steve Giles says:

    Attempted to activate OpenCloud Security before I knew it was a fake. It took me to a purchase page asking for the price exactly $52.95 and not $72.85. Luckily I did not purchase it. Attempted to remove it in Safe Mode but somehow it kept coming back. Finally tried the spyhunters scan and it immediately found OpenCloud Security. Registered and then removed it with no problem. It took a long time to find other infections my PC had probably from my friend using my PC for his porn activities. Folks, some advice: DO NOT LET YOUR FRIENDS USE YOUR PC or you will get a program like OpenCloud Security.

  • Bart Wilinoski says:

    Guys I just tried that SpyHunters Malware Scanner and it found that bull crap!!!!! Just paid for my copy and woola! The Stupid Opencloud Security no longer pops up anymore and my PC is running faster now from some other trojan crap it found. I would call your credit card co. immediately though like Reed said ma man. Those hacks have your card information now and are probably using it as we speak.

  • Damon says:

    Dude, you need to cancel your credit card ASAP. Don\’t let them re-charge you for that program because it is a fake. Didn\’t you read the description above?

  • Reed Miller says:

    OMG… does this mean if i purchased Opencloud they are going to charge my card again or just more??? i Need to know ASAP or i will have overdraft. Not cool. Can you remove opencloud? Does the malware scanner remove it for me because I have so had it with this opencloud security. It is garbage that i do not know how i got.
