A Suspicious Looking New Security Application

A new security application is launched on the last week of July. The application is named as WinXDefender.

Screen shot of WinXDefender application:

The application scan displayed a few spyware infections (some were imaginary and some were false detection), the trial version of the application doesn’t provide any option to remove the threat detected on the system. This is a routine technique used by rogue security application to hoax users into purchasing the full version of the application..

The application should be further evaluated to flag it malicious. When the installer file was scanned in, none of the 30 scanners flagged this application as malicious.

New security application but sure is suspicious… think twice before installing or purchasing the application.
