Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 Virus – Removal Instructions
Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 is a rogue antivirus program. It comes from Rogue.FakeRean-Braviax, which is responsible for an entire family of computer infections that pose as antivirus programs, producing fake scan results, reporting non-existent viruses, and preventing the user’s computer from running applications as a result of the fake malware supposedly being ‘detected.’
Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 is usually distributed on untrustworthy websites or infected/hacked websites. It is also typically attached to malicious spam emails or phishing emails, disguised as a legitimate file. When the recipient clicks what he thinks is data from his phone company, his computer becomes infected with Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014.
Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014, in its capacity as a rogue antivirus program, will terminate all other programs running on the host computer. This will prevent the user from having these applications at his disposal, particularly as they might be used to remove the actual source of the problem: Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014. This disabling of all programs also creates a false manifestation of system failure. Soon after this a false alert appears that literally hundreds of viruses have been detected. The alert notifies the user that the system has been hijacked. Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 indicates that there may be viruses harming the system that very moment, and that the user can prevent loss of data and infection by running security scan at no charge. Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 claims to have blocked a program’s access to the internet. It gives alerts for fabricated trojan attacks with real sounding names.
Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 warns that credit card data and other private data such as password information can be stolen. It cycles these and similar alerts, warning that the system has been “hacked” and that an “unknown program” is infiltrating the deepest and most secure databases of the computer. It also warns of software that will track the host computer. The computer is being watched from another source, and a scan is necessary. The fake antivirus program then informs the user that he must purchase the full version of Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 in order to purge the computer of all viral infections. This is where Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 tricks the user/victim into divulging personal information, such as credit card information and other details related to securing a payment. This can all of course be used for identity theft, credit card fraud, or other similar criminal activity.
