    Default "Fake Rogues" Promoted via YouTube

    As reported by Microsoft MVP, S!Ri, there have been several fake, fake anti-spyware programs promoted through YouTube. So far, these fake rogues do not have a registration code behind the "Activate" button. Instead, the activation button points to the same message: Registration failed!

    It appears that the fakes are being made by script kiddies with a virus creation kit that includes rogue templates. These include User Antivirus 2010 and New Antivirus 2010.



    The fakes have been added to detection by Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

    optimus, I edited your post to remove the hotlinks. I know for a fact that S!Ri pays for his own web hosting.

    Some additional information at Bleeping Computer: Script kiddies making rogues for fame and not profit.
