Windows Protection Suite virus

I got another email from Cyberdefender (these guys are so professional!!), and it seems like there is another virus to be aware of called the Windows Protection Suite.

If you have Cyberdefender on your computer, it will protect you from this virus, but if not then Good Luck.

Threat Name: Windows Protection Suite

Type: Rogue

Severity: High

Explanation of behavior:

1. Executable is random, different in name and MD5 every time it is installed. Folder is visible only if user selects to unhide in the folder options.

2. Once the process is running in memory, files are locked and no binaries can be executed. If user attempts to execute, nothing happens. User will just continue to receive popups to purchase.

3. This threat also drops random files on system when performing fake scans.

Please Note that this is not a paid review.
