rogue database

I had a customer call me today and complain that the Microsoft Security Essentials icon was missing.  After talking with them for a minute, he mentioned he had “Malware Professional 5.0” installed.  Huh?

He informed me that he paid $30 for it, and came across it from Priform CCleaner’s website.  I don’t know about that, but I do know that Malware Professional 5.0 is a rogue.

My guess is that MP5 killed MSE.  Also, it was not on the Add/Remove programs list either.

I informed the customer as such and encouraged him to dispute the charge and get a different CC# on that account.

Yikes.
