Internet Security Guard is yet another malicious rogue anti-spyware creation that was especially designed by cyber-crooks for the singular purpose of, intentionally robbing its intended targets of their hard earned cash.

According to Wiki-security.com malware researchers, Internet Security Guard is an addition to the particular family of rogue computer applications known as the FakeVimes family of malware products.

The malicious FakeVimes family of rogue security tools has the responsibility of releasing a number of other equally nasty rogue computer products over the Internet. For instance, a handful of such malicious precursor programs that have been discovered plaguing the Web in recent months were Home Security Solutions, Home Security Essentials, Anti-Malware Lab, and System Smart Security. As a direct descendant of each of these completely bogus security programs, Internet Security Guard is considered both a well-developed cyber scam and a replica of a number of other scareware campaigns that have targeted innumerable vulnerable machines, as well as successfully scammed their corresponding users.

What Does the Internet Security Guard Program Promise?


As is considered the norm when dealing with any one of the innumerable rogue antispyware programs like Internet Security Guard that increasingly circulate the net every single day, this particular malware-based cyber scam actively seeks to target and scam gullible computer users with its highly convincing bogus pretense of being an authentic computer security application.

In its looks and appearance, Internet Security Guard could very well be an honest to goodness computer security application that may do your computer some good, but this rogue antispyware application's seemingly legitimate appearance, user interface and convincing aesthetic components are merely pieces of the ploy that complete the cyber scam.

By definition, rogue security products – such as Internet Security Guard – can be defined as utterly useless and corrupt computer software that were designed to target and scam compromised machines' users.

In fact, the Internet Security Guard campaign's ultimate end-game and desired result is to convince you that your computer has become severely infected and that this rogue security tool is the best possible program to fix your machine. Internet Security Guard will attempt to convince all affected computer systems' users that it is more than up to the job of restoring infected machines and working to make them like new again.

The problem with each and every single claim made by Internet Security Guard is that all of its promises are fake.

As a rogue anti-spyware application, Internet Security Guard is malware – that is often distributed onto infected machines via a number of nefarious, corrupt methods – derived by cybercriminals specifically for the purposes of scamming users by convincing them that their machines are rife with all types of computer security threats. Internet Security Guard will run bogus security scans, generate phony threat detections reports and send a barrage of pop-up security alerts to your machine's desktop – all in this rogue application's desperate and corrupt attempts to scam you into purchasing its absolutely useless licensed version.

Do NOT ever allow yourself to fall for this blatant type of cyber scam.

Essentially, Internet Security Guard hopes to take your hard-earned cash in return for an utterly useless and entirely bogus computer security application that is, in no way, capable of protecting or fixing a compromised computer system. As soon as Internet Security Guard has been successfully identified and detected on a compromised machine, it is of the utmost importance that users take immediate steps to ensure that this absolutely useless rogue antispyware application is removed from their machines completely for good.
