Microsoft AntiSpayware – last word in fake anti-virus fraud schemes

A new malicious web-site featuring the online fake anti-virus doesn’t have a lush design of its predecessors but it uses the name of Microsoft Corporation.

Links to the web-site are spread over pop-up ads that appear in the rught bottom corner of the screen and look like pop-ups of the official ICQ client.

Messages containing such links inform a user that malicious programs are detected on his machines and prompt his to follow thelink in order to solve this problem.
