Infected with Internet Security Premium Virus – How to Remove?

The Internet Security Premium virus (also known as itdefender.exe) is a sneaky computer attack that attempts to trick users into thinking that there are several security threats that are present on the computer but in order to delete them they need to pay a software upgrade fee.  It is a variant of Internet Security virus, Internet Security 2013 virus, Internet Security 2014 virus or Internet Security Pro virus. The hacker group behind this attack has put in a lot of effort and work to make this resemble commonly seen anti-virus programs. Once it is installed on the computer it makes system changes and will launch at the same time that the computer is started up.

The Internet Security Premium Virus fake program will launch and display a sophisticated virus scanning program and it will appear to be scanning the system and all of the files on the computer, but this is nothing more than a pre-programmed script that displays the same “live scan” on every single computer that it is installed on. After running for some time it will display a message that has a list of Trojans, Worms, and other malicious files that are marked as viruses and serious threats. There is an option to select them all and delete them, which any computer user is going to do when presented with this situation. When that option is clicked on there is a notice that states that the software needs to be upgraded to the full paid version.

The user is then faced with two options. They can ignore the message, although it resembles an authentic looking program, and just hope that they do not suffer any negative consequences, or they can pay the upgrade and feel safe thinking that all of the dangerous files that were detected have been deleted. Since the Internet Security Premium virus is a complete scam, there are not any harmful files to worry about, but the average computer user will see this message and immediately take out their credit card and pay for this upgrade that doesn’t even exist. Once they pay they will never think about it again. So, now the hackers have extorted money from them and they now also have the users credit card information in their possession.
