What is GoSave?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that GoSave is a browser hijacker.

What is Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 is a fake anti-malware application. These so-called “rogues” use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have been compromised. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these threats. In extreme cases the false threats are actually the very trojans that advertise or even directly install the rogue.
