Some Fake Antivirus Programs

According to McAfee, the number of fake anti-virus software (also known as "Scareware") increased by 400% since 2009 to a loss of about 300 million U.S. dollars for the victims.

The thieves are malicious programs that steal personal information from your computer and use it illegally. They can provide information for various purposes, such as spam, junk mail, bank account, credit card use, etc. Be aware, these programs seem legal at first, but when looking at it a little, you know what they really are.
