WireShark Antivirus Description

ScreenshotWireShark Antivirus (or WireSharkAntivirus) is a rogue malware remover which uses the name of a legitimate company to urge unwary computer users to purchase a fake product. WireSharkAntivirus uses stealthy trojan malware to get onto the system undetected. The malicious Trojans configure the system to launch Wireshark Antivirus everytime Windows boots up. Once active, the trojans produce fake warnings claiming the PC is infected with malware to urge the user to purchase WireSharkAntivirus. WireShark Antivirus cannot remove malware and is designed to pilfer money from hapless computer users. Do not fall for its trickery and have WireSharkAntivirus and all related trojans removed immediately using updated software.
