What Does Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Virus Do?

Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Virus acts like many other rogue antivirus programs, but instead of promoting itself as a separate product, Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Virus pretends to be a part of the legitimate application Microsoft Security Essentials. In order to make the user believe this is true, Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Virus displays pop-up alerts practically identical to the ones used by the original program. The notifications claim that various threats have been detected on the compromised machine, which supposedly may lead to data loss on the victim’s computer. Malware specialists warn that Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Virus is not capable of detecting or removing any PC threats, so the messages should be considered fake and therefore – ignored.

Although Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Virus has a typical scamware behavior, its payment method is similar to a ransomware infection. The user is asked to use Paysafecard or Ukash in order to pay for the promoted fake security update.
