Live Security Professional Rogue

Live Security Professional is a rogue anti-virus program that displays warnings related to security threats that it has detected on your computer. It performs fake anti-malware scans and then afterwards it offers to remove the detected threats, but only if you register it. The threats that it detects on your computer are completely fake and should be ignored. This rogue program should not be purchased or registered under any circumstances. Purchasing a license for this fake program would place your personal and credit card data at great risk.

Live Security Professional spreads through malicious websites that exploit various operating system and software vulnerabilities. It may also be unintentionally installed by unsuspecting web site visitors clicking on fake online scanner warnings that may state that infected files have been detected on their systems. And for the user to click on the pop up ad to remove the detected threats by installing Live Security Professional.

Once this rogue anti-virus has been installed, it makes configuration changes so that it starts each time a user logs into their Windows account. Once it starts, it will perform a quick scan and then display numerous security threat results that are all fake.
