Pay attention on Avscanner.net domain. It’s a website controlled by the owners of dangerous program Malware Destructor 2011. It’s a scam application that pretends to be a security tool though in reality it has no useful functions at all and only wants to gain your money by selling its fake license.
Avscanner.net works as an online scanner. At first it reports that Windows Security has found critical process activity on your system and will perform fast scan of system files. Then it will pretend to perform system scan and report about plenty of infections supposedly detected on your system. There are no doubts that afterwards the program will be offering to purchase a full version of Malware Destructor 2011 in order to fix existing security issues. The alert usually reads:
Windows Security has found critical process activity on your system and will perform fast scan of system files.
In fact, the entire process makes an illusion that your system is really insecure. However, purchasing Malware Destructor 2011 is not a solution for this problem. It will lead to further computer infections and, most importantly, steal your money. Besides you will be bombarded by more security alerts giving fabricated information about your computer protection status.
Now, in late 2016, we could not find any information from users that this application (Malware Destructor 2011) was randomly offered to them. However, there are numerous other fake security tools that are going to initiate online scans and emphasize on the fact that your device is facing some extremely severe viruses. This, for the most part, is a hoax and we always advise our visitors to not be easily persuaded into following the implications that are made via online pop-ups. Most of the time, technical scams are done so frightened victims would turn to shady programmers that offer their “genuine assistance”. Many technical scams have become accustomed to include a helpline: this contact will only connect you to people, attempting to sell you products that are not of the best quality. In fact, at some cases, people might be urged to reveal their confidential information like banking passwords. Never purchase items or give away such important details about yourself.
The address Avscanner.net does not lead anywhere. If you attempt to enter it, you will only get redirected to a blank page, suggesting that your destination is out of reach. However, we cannot forget the possibility that it still might open up as a pop-up but there are more chances of you facing other technical scams that have been recently introduced to the Internet society. Technical scamming is a popular way to get people to purchase low-quality goods and we hope that you will resist such offers and turn to more appropriate sources for consultation and help. Avscanner.net is quite an old variant as our article about it was published in 2010. Now there are much more dangers in the Internet than there used to be so we advise you to be extremely critical to the material found online.
You are strongly recommended to remove Malware Destructor 2011 as soon as you are redirected to Avscanner.net. Do not trust this rogue program and its browser hijacker under any circumstances.
