C Components

Posted: April 13, 2010

C Components Description

C Components (or CComponents) is a clone of Control Components rogue anti-spyware program. C Components spreads after a Trojan infiltrates the targeted computer via a backdoor in the system. The Trojan stealthily downloads and installs corrupt data related to the C Components scam. The user will soon be redirected to a fake scan page which produces false results claiming the PC is infected with malware. This is a blatant scam to urge unwary users to purchase a copy of CComponents. Do not become another victim of cybercrime and have all threats related to C Components removed immediately.
