Live Security Platinum is Not a Real software?

Jun 05

There is a family of rogue antispyware called Rogue.WinWebSec. Every now and then it releases a fake antivirus system, that pretends to be the real deal and tries to rob countless computers worldwide. Live Security Platinum is the newest spawn of this family that can cause tremendous harm to your system. Removing Live Security Platinum is essential if you want to save your computer from an ultimate system crash. You might as well want to install a reliable computer safeguard application to get rid of the additional malware Live Security Platinum brought with it.

Even though Live Security Platinum is a new rogue on the playground, it certainly has a notorious background, not only because it comes from a big family or rogues, but also because it is a direct descendant of Smart Protection 2012, Personal Shield Pro and other rogues that are infamous for damaging numbers of computers worldwide. Live Security Platinum usually finds its way into your system via infected websites and fake online malware scanners, exploiting system vulnerabilities and slithering inside without you even realizing it. Once the installation is complete, the rogue loads automatically whenever you boot your system, because that is part of the infection’s configuration.

Naturally, the most common symptom of this infection is the fake system scan that Live Security Platinum performs right after it is up and running. You will be informed that your system is swarmed by such malicious nuisances as Win32.Spamta.KG.worm, Trojan.Dropper.MSWord.j or Worm.Bagle.CP, and even though these names correspond to the real threats that are lurking somewhere out there, this analysis report does not reflect the real situation of your system. The reality is that the one thing you have to be alarmed by is Live Security Platinum. And that is not only because of its disturbing security notifications:

Live Security Platinum Firewall Alert
Live Security Platinum Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the internet.

Internet Explorer Internet Browser is infected with SVCHOST.Stealth.Keylogger. This worm is trying to send your credit card details using Internet Explorer Internet Browser to connect to remove host.

The messages above are simply used as a tool to convince you to purchase the full version of the program, while in fact Live Security Platinum only wants to lure your money out of you. It will cause erratic system behavior just so that it would achieve its aim. For example, the rogue will deny access to some programs, claiming that they are infected and simply must be closed otherwise you are in a deep trouble:

Warning!
Application cannot be executed. The file notepad.exe is infected.
Please activate your antivirus software.

Nevertheless, you already ARE in trouble, because Live Security Platinum is throwing a party on your computer. And you will be even in a deeper trouble if you don’t erase Live Security Platinum in time. That can be easily achieved with a reliable computer security tool and this is exactly what you are recommended to do, because manual removal can be tiresome and dangerous (given that some users accidentally remove important system files while performing manual removal). Allow a program of choice to terminate Live Security Platinum along with its components, making sure that your system is clean and protected against similar threats.
