Beware of Misleading Advertisements

Beware of advertisements that offer to scan your machine for errors! You may end up with more than you bargained for …
Clicking on the below ad routes you to “spyshredder-scanner(dot)com” …



Well let’s see if I have any of the above issues or errors … oops!



Yeah my system “might be at risk!” … but it looks like it’s from visiting your site. As you can see they try to automatically load a “.cab” file while preforming a bogus scan in the background. Then they pop-up another bogus alert that malware has been detected. Fortunately NOD32 has detected the real malware …



Even if you click the Ignore button spyshredder-scanner still tries to install itself … which doesn’t really surprise me.
Thus another candidate for the HOSTS file.
