Even with the online computer security community doing everything in its power to enlighten computer users to the perils of malware products such as rogue anti-spyware applications, the Web is still being employed as a mechanism to propagate a large number of malicious, fake computer programs that function as nasty cyber scams. System Security 2012 is one such malevolent, rogue anti-spyware application.

The True Face of System Security 2012

While attempting to appear to targeted computer users as a useful and helpful, legitimate computer security program, System Security 2012 is actually a nasty malware infection – specifically, a malware in the form of a rogue anti-spyware program – that wrongfully presents itself to targeted computer users as a legitimate, valuable and practical application.

System Security 2012's false pretense of legitimacy could not be farther from the truth. This phony anti-spyware program is actually comprised of a frightening and deceptive scareware campaign, that seeks to thoroughly convince targeted computers' users that their systems are seriously plagued with all kinds of horrifying computer security threats. In working towards this end, System Security 2012's ultimate end-game is to manipulate unknowing computer users into willingly purchasing the full, registered version of this rogue security application's useless and non-existent so-called computer security program. System Security 2012 is part of the same rogueware family as Security Sphere 2012, Fake System Restore, AV Guard Online, OpenCloud Antivirus, Data Restore and System Security 2011.

Please be sure to note the absolute fact that, as a malware-based computer program, System Security 2012 is entirely incapable of protecting and/or guarding your computer system against any kind of seditious cyber attack. This is because, though System Security 2012 may possess the ability to skillfully emulate and mimic the legitimate processes of authentic computer security software, this malicious rogue anti-spyware program is not able to scan for, detect or remove any kind of computer security threat, whatsoever.

In short, System Security 2012 is a cyber scam that utilizes scareware tactics to achieve its ultimate end-game. This program should never be trusted. In fact, if your computer system is showing signs of been victimized by this disgusting computer security threat, it is important that you procure a means of completely removing System Security 2012 from your computer system, for good.

Known Signs and Symptoms of a System Security 2012 Infection

Three of the most common scareware-type components directly associated with programs of this kind are phony pop-up security alerts, fake threat detection reports and bogus security scans; and just as is true of nearly all rogue computer security programs, System Security 2012 will attempt to utilize these malicious scareware tactics on the computer systems that System Security 2012 is able to infect successfully. System Security 2012 will employ these particular tactics to attempt to sell you the ultimate falsehood that your system is absolutely rife with a range of fear-inducing computer security-related problems.

Additionally, on compromised computer systems, malware researchers have reported that System Security 2012 is also known to slow the Internet connection dramatically, connect to the Internet without the user's authorization and maybe even completely block Internet connection.

Several reports have also revealed that System Security 2012 may work to block various executable-type files from being able to launch, cause annoying and random system crashes and, in general terms, seriously affect the overall performance of any computer system infected with System Security 2012's rogue security application.
