Sunbelt BLOG: New rogue on the loose — Spyware Soft Stop

New rogue on the loose — Spyware Soft Stop

There is a new rogue antispyware on the loose, called Spyware Soft Stop (Whois).

At SunbeltBLOG, Alex Eckleberry has images to show what this looks like and what it does. Very slick social engineering for sure. It would likely fool many newer users.

From Sunbelt Blog:

* False security message
* Fake Windows Update Screen
* Horrible False\Positives
* Goad To purchase

Alex gives credit to some French friends for this information. Great job!

Thank you TeMerc for bringing this to our attention through the following posting at Scot’s Newsletter Forum.
