What is Security Scanner?
Quote:
The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Security Scanner is a fake anti-malware application. These so-called "rogues" use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have been compromised. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these threats. In extreme cases the false threats are actually the very trojans that advertise or even directly install the rogue

ACCDFISA Protection Program
Quote:
The ACCDFISA Protection Program is a ransomware computer infection that pretends to encrypt your files using AES encryption and then locks you out of the Windows desktop. When first encountered, this infection will state that it is from the Anti Cyber Crime Department of Federal Internet Security Agency and that a computer virus has been detected that is sending out SPAM email containing links to web sites hosting child pornography. The program then states that your data and computer will be inaccessible unless you use the Moneypak or Paysafecard services to send $100 via SMS to a particular phone number within 48 hours. It further warns that if you wait longer than 48 hours, the ACCDFISA program will delete your operating system and documents. As you can imagine this is all a scam that is being performed to scare you into paying $100 dollars for the proper operation of your computer and the restoration of your data. For no reason should you pay this ransom and should instead use the steps below to regain access to your data and computer.

Windows Basic Antivirus
Quote:
Windows Basic Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware program from the Rogue.VirusDoctor family. This program is classified as a rogue as it displays false information in order to trick you into purchasing the program. This particular variant is spread via two methods. The first method is the use of hacked web sites that exploit visitor's vulnerable programs in order to install the rogue without their permission. The second method uses web sites that display fake online anti-malware scanners that pretend to scan your computer, state that it is infected, and then prompt you to download and install Windows Basic Antivirus in order to clean it.
