What is Internet Security 2013?

Internet Security 2013 is rightly classified as rogueware mainly because it masquerades as a legitimate security program. As with every other rogueware, it deems your computer inoperable because of malware that has supposedly been detected on your computer. The only way out of these infections, is by purchasing the full version of the Internet Security software.

Internet Security’s Trojan strongly depends on social engineering tricks to deliver its payload.

How does Internet Security 2013 affect computers?

Hacked websites are endorsed by a pop-up window that has been carefully designed to resemble a legitimate security warning. Apparently, these popup windows alert a user to download and install Internet Security to solve the issue.

It has been also determined that users can catch the virus by downloading an infected codec file when attempting to watch a video online or by opening an infected email attachment. Needless to say, it is strongly recommended that one practices appropriate caution when visiting websites, opening an email from an unfamiliar person or when opening a suspicious link the spam email contained.

As soon as the computer is infected, the rogue antivirus starts scanning computer for possible infections. This is repeated every time a computer reboots. Internet Security 2013 virus supposedly finds hordes of threats that it informs you of by displaying messages similar to the following:

Threat detected!
Security alert! Your computer was found to be infected with privacy-threatening software. Private data may get stolen and system may be severe. Recover your PC from the infection right now, perform a security scan.
