Rogue Security Software Explained
What is Rogue Security Software?
Rogue security software, sometimes referred to as scareware, is software that appears to be beneficial from a security perspective but usually provides no security, generates incorrect or misleading alerts, or attempts to lure users into purchasing software.

How does Rogue Security Software get on my computer?
Rogue security software designers create legitimate looking applications that advertise security software. These windows might pop-up on your screen while you browse the WEB. The messages poping-up on screen ask you to take some sort of action, like clicking to install the software, to apply updates to your system, or to do a virus removal scan. Once you click on the message, the rogue security software downloads, installs and of course infects your computer. An example of a Rogue infection is the Rogue Security Center virus. This infection requires some serious virus removal.

What does it do?
Rogue security software might report a virus (Fake Alert) even though your computer is actually clean. Of course it will fail to report viruses in case your computer is infected. In most cases downloading rogue security software will install a virus or other malicious software on your computer. This infection is generally not reported and requires virus removal.

Backdoor Explained
What is Rogue Security Software?
A Backdoor Trojan opens a backdoor to your computer system. Sometimes they are referred to as Remote Access Trojans (RAT). They are common infections and one of the most dangerous type of trojan. Backdoor Trojans allow remote administration of your system as if a hacker was sitting at your keyboard, only worse. Once infected virus removal is necessary to remove the infection.

What does it do?
Backdoor Trojans might use your system and Internet connection to send spam (yes, the majority of spam is now generated by infected systems). Steal your online and offline passwords, credit card numbers, address, phone number, and other information stored on your computer that could be used for identity theft, or other financial fraud. Log your activity, read EMails, view and download contents of documents, pictures, videos and other private data. Use your computer and Internet connection, in conjunction with others to launch Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Modify system files, disable antivirus, delete files, change system settings, to cover tracks, or just to wreak havoc. If you suspect you’re infected with a backdoor trojan, the first thing you should do is disconnect from the Internet to protect yourself, and others.
