Internet Security 2011 is a rogue anti-virus application that was first reported in December 2010. It is a direct copy of the rogue anti-virus program Antivirus 2010. Internet Security 2011 makes use of including the year 2011 in the name of its software in order to convince you that it isn't fake. Internet Security 2011 is completely fake, and it is a scam.

Common Scare Tactics Used by Internet Security 2011

Internet Security 2011 employs some of the most common tactics used by rogue anti-malware programs, in order to scare you into paying money for its nonexistent software. For example, Internet Security 2011 will frequently run fake system scans and then report that those scans have found viruses or other threats on your computer. These supposed "threats" are a mixture of completely harmless Windows components, and files that are not actually on your computer at all. Even the interface for the bogus "scan" tries to deceive you by using graphics typically associated with Windows Security Center. All of this is supposed to lure you to go along with the scam when warned that in order to clean your computer and solve the problems it detected, you must buy the licensed version of Internet Security 2011.
 
Aside from the fake system scans, Internet Security 2011 will generate a huge number of pop-up warnings and error messages, which will all claim in one way or another that your computer is under attack. Again, all of these pop-ups will prompt you to pay to get the license for Internet Security 2011, so that it can fix everything.

Ineffective Ransom Attempts of Internet Security 2011

Finally, the other major tactic that Internet Security 2011 uses is that it prevents you from opening other programs, in an effort to prolong its stay on your computer. Strangely enough, Internet Security 2011 is pretty ineffective when it comes to really preventing other programs from running. Its rootkit will disable applications from starting the second time you try to run them, and it will then warn you that you do not have the necessary administrative access to open the program in question. What makes this especially weak as a tactic, is that in order to achieve control of your other applications, you can use basic Windows settings for user access and assign yourself the right level of administrative control.
 
Ineffective as it might be for people who know how to change Windows settings, Internet Security 2011 is still an infection, and still a scam. Internet Security 2011 finds its way onto a computer through a Trojan, and the Trojan is usually hidden in some harmless-looking thing on the Internet. The entire goal in getting Internet Security 2011 onto a computer, and in getting it onto a computer through a Trojan, is to try to get everyone whose computer is infected to pay for the fake software. Internet Security 2011 is just another rogue anti-virus application scam from Russia. Don't pay the ransom they demand in order to get your computer back, because there is no "licensed" version of Internet Security 2011, and the infection can be resolved in other ways.
