PC Defender 360 is a rogue anti-spyware program. When it is installed, PC Defender 360 will display fake scan results along with fake security alerts, and will even stop applications from running on the victim’s computer. PC Defender 360 is spread throughout Trojans that are hidden inside programs that pretend to be legitimate, but are in fact not at all. Moreover, users can also be infected with PC Defender 360 by visiting websites that have been compromised, thus infecting the victim’s computer without their knowledge.
After PC Defender 360 is installed into the victim’s computer, PC Defender 360 will start every time a victim starts a program on their computer. After it has started, it will start to run a fake scan on the victim’s computer, thus starting that there are various infections present. If a victim attempt to remove a program, it will then state that the victim must first purchase the program before the “infections” are removed. If the victim does indeed purchase PC Defender 360, after the rogue software has finished “scanning,” the infections will not be removed and the victim will have lost a considerable amount of money in the process. Thus, PC Defender 360 is absolutely good for nothing.
What is the point of PC Defender 360? Simply put, PC Defender 360 aims to trick victims into purchase the rogue software after they believe their computer is infected. Of course, PC Defender 360 will not remove any infections (in fact, the infections that are found are not even real), meaning PC Defender 360 is simply a waste of money and nothing more.
PC Defender 360 will show showcase a variety of alerts, such as the following:
