September 15, 2011

A current survey demonstrated that fake AV malware is the most widely spread tool for distributing infection amongst vulnerable computers. 58% of malware infections which targeted vulnerable computers and attempted to enter them in August are such fake applications. Data recovery is yet another example to prove this statement.

For the purpose of convincing victims they need Data Recovery full version, the malware uses different hacker strategies. They do not drastically differ from what we have previously seen from other such scams. The interface resembles, for example, the interface of Master Utilities.
