For Fake Alert Stinger's description


Fake Alert Stinger is a Security software developed by McAfee. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for Fake Alert Stinger:

Fake-alert software, also called fake AV or Rogue anti-virus software, is malware that masquerades as a legitimate security application. These threats employ social engineering tactics to trick users into purchasing and installing malicious products. Once installed, a system scan appears to run and subsequently claims that the machine is infected. During the fake scan several other nefarious activities occur in the background, including the disabling of legitimate security applications.

In our efforts to provide the best Protection and support to our customers against this family of malware, we have strengthened our Fake Alert Stinger, which detects and remediates fake-alert threats. This version introduces two features that help in the rapid resolution of infections from fake alerts. These features are accessible from the Preferences dialog box.

a) Scan Options:We have introduced two intuitive scan modes in the Fake Alert Stinger tool. These modes are described below. They can be enabled from the Preferences dialog box before running a scan from the main window:

b) Fix to Scan: Often fake-alert infections will Prevent the machine from working as expected. This makes the threat persistent and prevents users from remediating the infection. In some cases, fake-alert infections will hijack certain Windows Registry Keys that associate applications based on file extensions. The new detection mode Fix to Scan helps users in removing changes made by fake alerts. We recommend this mode of detection only when a user is unable to run any application. Fix to Scan restores the system to a state in which users can run other applications, including an anti-virus scan to Detect and remediate the infection.
