Win 8 Defender 2013 Description
Win 8 Defender 2013 is one of the newest entries into the FakeRean family, a group of fake anti-malware programs that use slightly-different skins and brand names to make themselves appear like wholly new products. From the outset, Win 8 Defender 2013 will create a flexible range of pop-up alerts and system scanner-based warnings, but PC threats detected by Win 8 Defender 2013 are, in reality, nonexistent.
Win 8 Defender 2013: Just a Long Fraud from Install to Purchase
Win 8 Defender 2013 can be installed by fake online scanners (associated with variants of the ‘Windows Security 2012 has found critical process’ Pop-Up Alert), by exploit kits like Blacole or by Trojans with downloading functions (Zlob, Bredolab, Rugzip, et cetera). These numerous means of installing Win 8 Defender 2013 may attempt to portray Win 8 Defender 2013 as legitimate security software or even indicate that Win 8 Defender 2013 is required to disinfect immediate problems on your PC.
Once Win 8 Defender 2013 is on your computer, Win 8 Defender 2013 fails to show any ability to detect genuine infections. While Win 8 Defender 2013′s pop-ups and other alerts will proclaim the presence of many types of malware, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers note that these alerts are fraudulent and never contain a shred of accuracy – except, potentially, by sheer accident and happenstance. Given Win 8 Defender 2013′s empty shell of security features, purchasing Win 8 Defender 2013 should obviously be a bad decision, and you should never feel that you have to buy Win 8 Defender 2013, regardless of how pushy its marketing becomes.
