Security Essentials 2011 / 2010 - Rogue Microsoft Security Essentials Has Many Faces


Cybercriminals were bound to take notice of the increase in popularity of Microsoft Security Essentials, and fact is that at just one year since release there are various fake AV masquerading as MSE.

Some users might have already have been unfortunate enough to come across rogue antivirus labeled Security Essentials 2010 or Security Essentials 2011.

Neither Security Essentials 2010 nor Security Essentials 2011 have anything to do with Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0 or Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0.

Both examples of rogue AV are detected by Microsoft security solutions as variations of the Fakeinit malicious code.

The software giant detects three separate threats, namely: Rogue:HTML/Fakeinit, Rogue:Win32/Fakeinit and Win32/Fakeinit.
