Home Rogue Websites Eclipseantivirus.com


Posted: July 21, 2011

As yet another rogue anti-virus software website, eclipseantivirus.com doesn't offer any real security or virus-removal features for your PC, and its trademark software, Eclipse Antivirus, can be considered to be actively dangerous. The criminals responsible for eclipseantivirus.com have been linked to fraudulent credit card bills, deceitful distribution of malicious software and other unsavory activities based on stealing your money or misrepresenting your computer's health. You should ditch any eclipseantivirus.com scamware and use a real anti-virus program instead, since eclipseantivirus.com rogue anti-virus products only will hinder your ability to use various programs and give you bad information.

Eclipseantivirus.com: A Fake Software Website That's Quite Happy to Set the Sun on Your Computer Security

SpywareRemove.com malware researchers have come to know eclipseantivirus.com well by studying related websites and rogue anti-virus programs that were devised by the same criminal minds. Eclipseantivirus.com sells a variant of the same rogue AV software that's sold by such websites as antivirusedition.com, windowsdef.com, unlimguard.com and unlimdefender.com. Even the design of the eclipseantivirus.com website is based on these other examples of scamware fraud sites which sell Eclipse Antivirus clones like Ultimate Guard and Unlimited Defender.

Eclipse Antivirus and other rogue anti-virus applications that are sold by eclipseantivirus.com and related websites barely bother with a thin pretense of being anti-virus programs, and will prove to be more of a burden than anything else by blocking off real security software. Eclipseantivirus.com will use online scanners and various forms of fake feedback from Eclipse Antivirus to trick you into thinking that you need to spend money at eclipseantivirus.com, but doing this only wastes your money on scamware that can't find or delete viruses.

SpywareRemove.com PC threat analysts haven't found any indications that eclipseantivirus.com scamware causes permanent harm to security software on an infected PC. However, using standard anti-malware procedures to disable Eclipse Antivirus may be necessary before you can remove eclipseantivirus.com problems from your computer. Scanning with an anti-virus product in Safe Mode, which can be accessed with the F8 key during a reboot, typically is considered the most readily-available solution.

Seeing Sunny Skies Again Despite Eclipseantivirus.com's Gloomy Warnings

Eclipseantivirus.com is likely to try to infect your PC without your consent or by using misleading errors and online scans. One common attack that's been linked to eclipseantivirus.com and related PC threats is a fake online scan or browser update that uses the following message while eclipseantivirus.com tries to install Eclipse Antivirus or another rogue anti-virus program:

"Eclipse Antivirus Firewall Alert! – Scanning of your system is currently on, please waiting until the end. Your system affected by numerous virus attacks, Eclipse Antivirus Firewall Alert recommends you to install proper software to protect your computer?"

In other cases, Trojans such as Zlob or Fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert may be used to install eclipseantivirus.com rogue anti-virus applications without your consent. These Trojans may indulge in software-blocking attacks of their own as well as redirecting your website to eclipseantivirus.com or other malicious sites that should be avoided.
