Multi-Rogue XP Total Security

Posted: January 2, 2013

Multi-Rogue XP Total Security is a sub-classification for rogue anti-spyware members from the FakeRean family that specialize in infecting Windows XP-based PCs. However, according to previous research by SpywareRemove.com malware experts, other versions of Windows also are at risk of FakeRean attacks from variants that are, in turn, specialized for either Windows 7 or Windows Vista. Members of the Multi-Rogue XP Total Security group of scamware create fake malware warnings and scans that are full of inaccurate results, which never detect real infections or problems with your computer. SpywareRemove.com malware researchers especially recommend against buying any individual member of Multi-Rogue XP Total Security and urge you to use a reputable brand of anti-malware product to remove your variant of Multi-Rogue XP Total Security as quickly as it can be done.

Multi-Rogue XP Total Security may come in any of several brand names, with current members including XP Total Security, XP Total Security 2011, XP Total Security 2012, XP Total Security 2013, XP Total Security Plus 2013 and, finally, XP Total Security Pro 2013. Individual members of Multi-Rogue XP Total Security, like most variants of the FakeRean scamware, don't display different functions and can be considered identically malicious to each other. Trojan droppers, malicious website exploits like Blacole and spam links all have been found to distribute members of the Multi-Rogue XP Total Security family.

After it infects your PC, your given variant of Multi-Rogue XP Total Security will display a range of different fake security alerts, along with system scans. However, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts have long since verified that these security features don't have any capability to detect or remove real PC threats. Instead, they're used to display inaccurate system information to imply that your PC is being attacked by large quantities of high-level threats – particularly different types of spyware (malware that steals confidential information).

Multi-Rogue XP Total Security pretends to detect these problems for free, but if you try to use Multi-Rogue XP Total Security to remove them, Multi-Rogue XP Total Security will display a fake software purchase page. Of course, SpywareRemove.com malware research team strongly recommends against wasting money on Multi-Rogue XP Total Security or any other FakeRean-based software. Nonetheless, registering Multi-Rogue XP Total Security with one of the various freely-distributed registration codes can be considered helpful (albeit not mandatory) for removing Multi-Rogue XP Total Security easily.
