rogue anti-spyware that is said to belong to the WiniGuard family of
fake software programs. It uses the well-known tactic of trying to
scare the user into buying its ‘full’ version. Win Security 360
enters a user’s computer by using Trojan viruses that get
downloaded from websites claiming to have free virus scans. Once it
has been installed, Win Security 360 proceeds to perform endless fake
scans of the system, generating fake pop-ups which claim that the
computer is seriously infected. Browsing the web becomes impossible
due to the endless stream of warnings that Win Security 360
generates. It also asks the user to pay for the ‘full’ version of
Win Security 360 by trying to convince the user that the currently
installed ‘trial’ version is not good enough for the job of
removing all the fake ‘threats’ that are present on the user’s
system. It is important to note that this ‘full’ version of Win
Security 360 is just as incapable of removing the ‘threats’ as
the ‘trial’ version, and no user should allow themselves to be
tricked into buying a license to this fake software.
