Nice video Melih,Those rogue antiviruses aren't fun. Sadly, some people don't know enough to differ a real antivirus from a rogue one. As a solution, perhaps include Computer Security as a subject in school? ;)

sure, it wouldn't hurt to do that.
I also believe we as the Security Industry must do more to differnetiate what is legitimate what is not.

thanks

one unofficial and not always accurate way to see if it is legit or not, is the look, like i know superantispyware IS legit, it looks like a scam.

There is an industry effort in place http://www.ccssforum.org/ . The industry is now getting together to solve these issues.

that is very good to know. But stuill, i brought the issue up with SAS (Super anti spyware) and they claim it is only important for the feauters not the looks. THat is true but it still cant look like a mlaware.

All the new rouge software usually looks good now nowadays, So i don't think you can say anything looks like a rouge software any more. But  If we did go some years back i would agree  ^_^

Yea most have realy nice GUI and look realy promising. For some people it's just hard to see wich one is real and wich one is not. I even saw people that thought that 'RealAntivirus' was a good av lol^^

I'm not saying the rogues look bad, I'm saying that when something looks to good or too bad, its usually rogue, but for SAS its not but it looks horrible. The interface looks like its from 1998

I like SAS interface.

I think it's better then Avira, Avast, AVG, Kaspersky, NOD32, MBAM and alot of others i've seen  ^_^

Nice Headsup Melih.

It really pays to be a discerned Netizen and have a wee bit of Branded AV products, else it sure bodes to end as a catastrophe. 

Kind regards,

There will ALWAYS be viruses that ALL AV products will miss regularly. That is why we need Prevention as our first line of defense and not detection as it is today.
