What is Windows AntiBreach Module?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Windows AntiBreach Module 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.
