Summary

Best Antivirus Software is a variant of Win32/FakeVimes - a family of programs that claims to scan for malware and displays fake warnings of "malicious programs and viruses". They then inform the user that they need to pay money to register the software in order to remove these non-existent threats. It may also modify security settings, prevent programs from running, and modify the Hosts file.
