Virus Alert: Rogue Antivirus
Antivirus 2009 is a new malware program, which is also a clone of Antivirus 2008 - a virus with various names and functions.
There are many of these programs infecting systems at a rapid rate, among them are System Antivirus 2008, Ultimate Antivirus 2008, Vista Antivirus 2008, XP Antivirus 2008 etc.
Antivirus 2009 uses trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo, to infect systems. These trojans lurk in various websites disguised as video codecs, and, upon entering the system, floods the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection.
Regardless of any previous infections, Antivirus 2009 will say the system is infected whether it’s true or not.
The point of this disinformation is to convince the user he is infected and therefore needs an antispyware program to dispose of the threat.
The user might click on one of the popups or notifications, all of which claim they will take him to a legitimate security tool, but try to make him purchase Antivirus 2009’s “licensed version” instead.
This program is malware and is a scam. Do NOT download it or attempt to purchase what it offers.
Currently CA security suite will remove this virus and its variations. You can purchase the software with 3 renewable licenses (3 Years worth of protection) from us for $65 or download it directly from the CA website for $69.99.

Fake Microsoft Security Email Bulletin
The email claims to come from Microsoft and includes a link to what is supposed to be a patch for the issue however it is actually a malicious browser add-on (BHO.)
Always remember that you shouldn’t click on links or open email attachments if you are not expecting the email and know and trust the sender. It’s always advisable to directly visit web sites, instead of clinking on a link in an email, to confirm that the information in that email is correct.
