Granted, it is annoying to hear another rogue security application which is hell bound on wreaking havoc and stealing your money has entered the market, but take heed of Internet Security 2011. This rogue is not to be underestimated in the least – as many users have come to do and regret in the past. Internet Security 2011’s vitriol have even surprised and stunned industry professionals. It’s no wonder why PC owners the world over is scrambling to get rid of Internet Security 2011.
This ridiculous rogue takes attacks on PCs to another level, with its ability to block Internet connections and the executing of legitimate executables. The reason for this is twofold: Internet Security 2011 will prevent the user from accessing the Internet or running programs in an effort to prevent him from accessing security sites or running programs which could detect and remove Internet Security 2011 from the system. The second reason is it’s all a part of Internet Security 2011’s attack on the system in order to panic the user and systematically gain his trust.
When Internet Security 2011 tries to block executables, users will receive the following message:
“Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.”
Users can easily circumvent Internet Security 2011’s attempts and successfully run the program again by using cacls.exe, which comes standard with any Windows OS. This will give the “Everyone Group” access again.
“cacls /G Everyone:F”
Internet Security 2011 will replace a crucial Windows component, which is called userinit.exe. Users should not delete this important Windows component, as it is crucial to the health of the system.
“c:WINDOWSsystem32us?rinit.exe (Do not delete the C:WindowsSystem32userinit.exe file)”
As is expected, Internet Security 2011 will make use of various fake security alerts which should never enjoy any attention, seeing as it is completely fake and without merit.
“Attention! Network attack detected!
Your computer is being attacked from remote host. Attack has been classified as Remote code execution attempt.”
“Attention! Threat detected!
NOTEPAD.EXE is infected with Trojan-BNK.Keylogger.gen
Private data can be stolen by third parties including card details and passwords.
It is strongly recommended to perform threat removal on your system.”
“Windows Security Alert
Your computer is making unauthorized copies of your system and Internet files.
You should immediately run full scanning of your system to prevent any unauthorized access to your data.
Click YES to run Antivirus scanner right now.”
Do not trust any correspondence received from this incredulous rogue, and eliminate Internet Security 2011 from the system in order to prevent irreparable damage to your PC.
