We can’t imagine our lives without computers nowadays and one of our top priorities should be the safety of our systems. It is also very easy to make use of these good intentions and this is exactly what the creators of Security Defender do. This rogue anti-spyware pretends to be an authentic security application, but don’t be tricked by this cheap disguise. Placing your confidence in this rogue will result in undesirable consequences. Therefore, exterminate Security Defender before it is too late.
The rogue’s journey towards your system can start with something as innocent as one single click on a link to unfamiliar website. Even though you might not have any intention to do so, you can find yourself on a browser hijacker website which hosts a Trojan horse infection. Trojans are the most common distributors of Security Defender and other similar rogues. They might dwell not only in browser hijacker sites, but also in fake online malware scanners. If you click on a fake scanner, it will perform a fake scan of your system, and afterwards will definitely notify you, that you have serious infections and you need to download a security tool. That security tool will actually be nothing, but a contamination on its own.
Even though it is hard to determine the exact moment of Security Defender’s installation upon your system, you will notice soon enough that you’ve been infected, because this rogue is rather aggressive in promoting itself. You will receive numerous security threat pop-ups, claiming that your computer is experiencing serious infection.
