Securebit

April 26th, 2013

Securebit a.k.a. Securebit Technologies is a rogue program. It’s named like antimalware and it’s designed to look like antimalware but the (relatively) nice look hides a computer infection. Securebit is just another cyber fraud targeting your money.

Those fake notifications are convincing enough to trick victims of Securebit into paying for the “tool”. Avoid the trap: Securebit is only able to mimic security programs. Do not pay for non-existent services.

Securebit may also lock your desktop and display the following message:

Free Antivirus
Infected files have been detected on your PC.
359 Infected files found.
It is recommended to run a full system scan and clean your PC.
For Support Call 1-800-862-2015 (Toll Free US/Canada)

The alert is highly inaccurate as the “infected files” are made up and the “free antivirus” costs $30-50USD.
