One of the victims said: I’ve recently acquired the Security Defender Virus and I can’t run any .exe files to get rid of it. I tried in both normal and safe mode with networking. Anytime I try to open malware bytes or rkill it comes up with a screen saying security defender firewall alert and lists the program i’m trying to open. It gives me two options “Activate” (to register my copy of Security Defender) or “Stay Unprotected”. I tried using a flash drive to open up RKill and MBytes but it still won’t let me run them.
