AntiSpyware Soft

AntiSpyware Soft is one of a new type of "scareware" malware that has recently begun appearing on the internet. This malware purports to be a computer scan that finds viruses on the user's computer, and tells the user to purchase and download AntiSpyware Soft to remove these viruses. Unfortunately, AntiSpyware Soft is the real infection.

How Does one Contract the AntiSpyware Soft Malware?

One contracts the AntiSpyware Soft malware when he or she visits a website that is infected. The website will show a popup window or animation that looks very much like a standard Microsoft Windows window. This window will say that it is scanning the user's computer and inevitably find a large number of viruses. The window will say that to remove these virus, the user must purchase, download, and install AntiSpyware Soft. These windows typically appear most on social networking sites and other sites that have an external company host their advertising. However, since these advertising networks are very complicated and interconnected, the windows can appear on any site. In fact, the New York Times website was once infected with a popup that advertised scareware. To prevent infection one should treat any window that acts as described above with caution and never download software that one did not specifically request.

A typical fake message you might get from AntiSpyware Soft:

Windows Security Alert

Windows reports that computer is infected

What are the Symptoms of the AntiSpyware Soft Malware?

AntiSpyware Soft has a number of effects. First, it will continually pester the user with popup windows requesting more money for various reasons. It also, based on the version, may carry various viruses as a "payload" of sorts, which can have any effect from taking control of the user's computer to installing a keylogger, which will steal personal information. It will forbid the user from opening any tool such as the task manager or control panel, claiming that the files are infected. It blocks access to most websites, saying they are infected as well. If the malware is left on the computer for too long, it will start to open browser windows at random intervals to pornographic websites.

How Does one Remove the AntiSpyware Soft Rogue Antivirus?

Since almost everything will be blocked on the user's computer, one must download an antimalware utility on another computer and run it on the infected computer. This utility should be something from a trustworthy source, such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) . AntiSpyware Soft will probably block any antimalware utility that the user tries to run, In that case open up the computer in safe mode. Then the user must transfer the antimalware utility and run it. AntiSpyware Soft is not a very sophisticated piece of malware, so it should be easy for an antimalware utility to remove. However, whatever viruses came with it may or may not be removed. These "piggyback" viruses can be very sophisticated. Therefore, after an infection of this type, it is good practice to be cautious when using the computer, and do a complete scan with an up-to-date antivirus program.
