    Fake Antispyware

    F-Secure posted a blog entry about a fake antispyware called Search-and-Destroy.
    The entry includes a lot of screen shots about the software and the site where users could download it. In their tests, they found out that it found 159 problems in their system. However, the software could not fix the problems in the trial version.
    Under the “malicious threats” section, there were invalid shortcuts and the author of the entry acknowledges that it is correct but they are not threats that users should worry about.
