One of the more prevalent types of threats that exist in cyberspace today goes by the name of XPAntivirus. This malicious program is a rogue antispyware program that is causing many people problems. It engages heavily in the practice of reporting false positives. This means that it reports threats to your system in an effort to scare you into purchasing its full download as a proffered solution to your fictitious problem. These threats come in the form of an aggressive pop up message campaign that will not relent until you take action to rid your system of this bad software.
XPAntivirus is not only a rip-off, but it is also dangerous. XPAntivirus is a software program that claims to find spyware and viruses on your computer and for a fee it will remove them. This is a false claim. XPAntivirus is a counterfeit knock-off of a Microsoft program that will actually load spyware onto your computer and hijack your browser. It will also load information stealing viruses to your hard drive that captures your info and sends it back to them to use however they want.
XPAntivirus gains your trust by looking and feeling like a Microsoft application. When you download the free spyware scan, it actually loads nine files onto your computer that looks like spyware and trojan viruses, and then finds them for you to convince you that you need to purchase their software in order to clean them out. This is all very convincing, even frightening to see that you have three trojan viruses on your computer, and you are moved to purchase XPAntivirus to get rid of them quickly.
When you purchase XPAntivirus with your credit card, the company actually bundles other bogus software into the purchase and your card is charged for 50% more than you intended to pay. Of course your first step is to call the XPAntivirus people and find out what is going on, but the contact number that is given to your credit card (there is no contact information on the website) is bogus as well. It simply puts you on hold for nearly a half an hour, then tells you that the mailbox is full and disconnects. Your credit card company won’t initially do anything until you have tried to resolve the problem with XPAntivirus. You’re essentially stuck between a rock and a hard place. You’ve been ripped off.
