Right after we started Panda’s CI (collective intelligence) project few years back. We decided to provide a community based antivirus program called Panda CloudAntivirus.
When all the good guys trying to improve and to keep the community safe. We notice the bad guys are trying to take the opportunity to “sell” their fake antivirus.
Earlier today, we received a sample which is a rogueware (well know as fake antivirus). They named it “Open Cloud Antivirus”. Looks like for them “cloud” is the way to make money, for now.
After a quick analysis, these are the few screenshots that we manage to capture. If you ever see this image, do not believe it. Close the windows immediately and continue your work.

“Close the windows immediately and continue your work.”
I think your customers will be very grateful to you for this removal advice…
Well, our customers will have it removed without doing anything, that’s why they can continue their work 😉
I got this virus on my computer.this Wednesday. Closed it without activating as you recommend. Got a message from Panda that they neutralized it. It does not appear to be neutralized. I ran malwarebytes and found several trojans and viruses. My sound does not work now. I tried a system reture and cannot restore. Search is not functioning property. Will run another scan using Panda – Any other suggestions. Hope my $80 was well spent.
The good thing about having an antivirus is not just the software itself but the tech support that comes with it. Contact out tech support team and they will help you to clean the computer!
