Personal Antivirus

Personal Antivirus is a phony antivirus program, or a rogue anti-spyware application. This fake spyware remover is a parasite that is designed to scam people out of their money using scare tactics. Personal Antivirus should not be trusted, do not buy this corrupt software.

Personal Antivirus is made by the same jerks who make other nasty rogue security software including; Antivirus 2009, Antivirus 360 and TotalSecurity.

Like most rogue antispyware and rogue antivirus software, Personal Antivirus uses trojans to infect PC after PC. Once Personal Antivirus makes it's way onto a computer it will continually bombard the user with false and misleading security alerts in the form of pop-ups, system scan results and warnings that look very similar to windows system alerts. All this in an effort to make people think they need to buy Personal Antivirus to clean their computers. Unfortunately after the corrupt software is purchased it is completely useless.

  1. Tipping Point have a filter for this malware, used in the 3Com X-series devices (X5, X506) and the Tipping Point's own Intrusion Prevention Systems. Im sure other vendors either have or are working on the problem, but they're a bit quiet on the whole debacle.

    Finally someone found a way to stop this thing. A convincing GUI made this one a bit of a trap for some of our customers.

    There’s a good wiki page too... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_software
