InfoDoctor will use a fake online scanner and misleading video/warez websites as part of its scare tactics. Info Doctor is also distributed on Facebook and other social sites so be very careful when opening unknown links. After being warned about the infection you will be urged to purchase a licensed version of InfoDoctor, which is in fact useless.
