Home Malware Programs Trojans YourPrivacyProtector


Posted: October 31, 2007

YourPrivacyProtector is a rogue spyware removal tool and privacy defender designed to trick users into purchasing its full rogue version by showing misleading warning messages on the Taskbar. YourPrivacyProtector is usually downloaded and installed via a Zlob Trojan. Once executed, YourPrivacyProtector will scan your machine and use false positives in order to frighten you into purchasing the full version of the program. Although YourPrivacyProtector may appear to be undamaging, it is a security risk to your computer and it may actually expose you to more security threats by installing additional malware.
