With a name like Smart Internet Protection 2012, it might seem reasonable to assume that this computer program is meant to protect machines, but sad to say, this is not at all actually the case. Regardless of its convincing name, Smart Internet Protection 2012 is a rogue antispyware application that attempts to masquerade as a legitimate computer security product in order to scam its users.

Smart Internet Protection 2012 has been diagnosed as a rogue anti-spyware application and, by definition, these malicious malware products are very deceptive computer applications that are derived by cybercrooks for the express purpose of scamming their victims. Thus, Smart Internet Protection 2012 should be considered a fear-inducing scareware campaign designed to rob you by frightening you.

What Makes Smart Internet Protection 2012 a Convincing and Tricky Cyber Scam?

In addition to its very deceptive name, Smart Internet Protection 2012 also possesses a very convincing outer shell. Though many computer threats possess no real interface or tangible presence on computers that they infect, rogue security products are well known for their convincing designs and Smart Internet Protection is no exception. As such, Smart Internet Protection is a fake antispyware application that was stylized to mimic the striking appearances and functionality of various real antispyware products.

The aesthetic properties of this rogue anti-spyware application (i.e. convincing GUIs, etc.) were especially designed to be able to dupe unknowing computer users into buying into the false pretenses and empty promises that just ooze from this fake security software.

Smart Internet Protection 2012's Malevolent Family of Rogue Security Programs

Descendant from a long line of identical rogue security applications, Smart Internet Protection is just one of the members of an already large and well-developed family of malevolent rogue security tools. In fact, Smart Internet Protection 2012 is little more than a replica of previously released rogue security applications, such as Home Safety Essentials and Home Security Solutions.

Hailing from the family of malware products that produced both of these well-known rogue anti-spyware applications, Smart Internet Protection 2012 can also claim other additional rogue anti-spyware programs as replica-like family members. Among these additional family members are rogue anti-spyware applications, such as Anti-Malware Lab, System Smart Security, Internet Security Guard and Internet Security 2012, Smart Protection 2012.
Fundamentally, each member of Smart Internet Protection 2012's family is comprised of the same cyber scam. In fact, the only major difference that can be spotted between Smart Internet Protection 2012 and its precursor family members is the obvious variation found in their displayed names.
In a lot of ways, it can often seem as though groups of rogue anti-spyware applications such as Smart Internet Protection 2012's family, are often as sizeable as they are because the cybercriminals responsible for them continually release the same product under different names in the hopes of catching more people off guard. When one particular name becomes too notorious, it seems that cybercrooks merely release new variants under unknown names in order to catch users off guard. This is why it is so imperative that computer users stay vigilant in terms of their systems' computer security needs and always be aware of different programs – as well as their origins – that are installed on their machine.
