System Smart Security

What is System Smart Security?

System Smart Security is the latest in a long line of rogue / fake security clients. This type of a virus is known as malware. It's a fake program that is passing it's self off as a legitimate anti-virus client.

 How Did I get infected with System Smart Security?

Like most malware clients on the market there are many different ways a user can get infected. They can be tricked into installing the virus by being made to think the program they are installing is video update or security update. Users may also not have proper anti-virus protection on their computer. The latter is very common. Most anti-virus clients do not provide ample up front protection and never have the latest updates. They are stripped down versions of the paid antivirus client.

What is System Smart Security Doing to My Computer Right Now?

System Smart Security will most likely follow the same path that other clones of this malware have done. It will block you from running / installing other programs on your computer until you remove the bogus security program or make a purchase of the program. It will show exaggerated and false scan results as well as error messages made to scare you into making a purchase. Just know that it's all a scam and the warnings the program gives are false claims. At this time and in our testing's we found no indication of this program being a bot, trojan banker or keylogger. However this does not mean you don't have other trojans and viruses on your computer besides the System Smart Security client
