Another wolf in sheeps clothing



I did an article a while back on “wolves in sheeps clothing” software that poses as security software but will usually turn around and bite you. Sunbeltblog has a post on another fake security center site. Keep an eye peeled for these, information is power in protecting yourself against this kind of stuff. This site is at www.updateyoursystem.com


One of the big problems with not educating users and instead trying to make things simpler, is it becomes easier for malicious attackers to spoof such things as the users don’t question things, just click.
