Fake Trojan Removal Kit runs ThinkPoint rogue

When looking for an anti-malware solution, it pays to be extra careful.

Take the example of the “Trojan Removal Kit”. It is offered on fake security scan pages that you might end up on quite accidentally, and often those pages sport names such as microsoftwindowssecurityXXX.com – in which the “XXX” can be any combination of numbers.

According to Sunbelt, this particular piece of malware is actually the well-known ThinkPoint rogue AV solution which hijacks your PC, simulates “Blue Screens of Death” and makes payment windows pop up constantly.

This heap of trouble could have been avoided by a simple Internet search.
