A new malware named as Windows Vista Recovery has been found recently by Internet security analysis firm Enigma Software Group. This new malware belongs to scareware group as told by Enigma Software, which is also known as rogueware.
It starts showing security alerts along with fake error messages as soon as it gets loaded to computer. Any computer user whose computer is loaded by the malware gets in mind all about that his hard drive is having some problems. Actually the drive will not have any fault and such error messages will be sending artificially. One can fix this problem by taking down and loading a program from the Internet.
This fake software has a very convincing name and the users are troubled by error notices. One can never think of it being a malware. It will also recommend performing complete system scan. The program is made in such a way that it simply continues to alert the user of increasing number of errors identified.
Enigma Software told that essentially the perpetrators of Windows Vista Recovery merely attempt at persuading victims to pay a fees for setting their faulty systems right. But it is just the waste of money to purchase the tool online. While purchasing the tool the users unwittingly reveal their credit card details to the hackers. Many of the PC users have reported that PC operators have come to the security firm telling that their machines are inflicted with Windows Vista Recovery. Some users also complained that they get blocked to the internet as soon as the rogueware was loaded.
The Windows Vista Recovery cannot be uninstalled from control panel using “remove or add” option. It cannot be eliminated using other associated file related to Windows Vista Recovery.
