Quite recently a new rogueware called Advanced Security Tool 2010 entered the scene. This file is being detected as Adware/SecurityTool2010.
Besides having a more modern look and a slick interface, it also loads an exploit known as the help center vulnerability. Microsoft has issued a Security Bulletin in July.
Preventive measures can be taken by keeping your Windows as well as your Antivirus software up-to-date. Sean-Paul Correl has reported on this vulnerability in another blog post:
HCP Vulnerability Exploited in the Wild
Here is a video demonstrating this latest rogueware while loading the exploit:
That is one of the most professional looking rogueware “security” apps which I have yet seen. Obviously cybercriminals paid hackers a lot of money to develop this very deceiving product which is sure to fool a lot of inexperienced computer users.
