Security Center

Posted: July 28, 2009

Security Center is a replica of Privacy Components and Secret Service, which are dangerous rogue anti-spyware applications. Security Center, through a Trojan infection such as Vundo, is able to be installed without permission from the computer user or system administrator. After installed, Security Center is able to display fake system alerts in the form of an annoying popup and conduct system scans that return falsified results.

Security Center is not able to scan for and detect spyware. Removal of Security Center is recommended to prevent damages to system files.
