Windows 7: Fake Anti Virus raises a few brows.

01 Feb 2011   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Fake Anti Virus raises a few brows.


When rogue security software uses multiple different names for itself, it's not especially noteworthy. In the past we have seen rogues that changed their names almost every day, and even a single rogue executable that could use one of 33 different names for itself.

After several months of calling themselves "Antivirus 8", recent variants of Rogue:Win32/FakeXPA have begun going by the name of "AVG Antivirus 2011."
