Viruses are harmful elements that damage your computer from normal functioning. On the other hand, spyware is a type of virus that captures your personal information without your knowledge. This can lead to you giving out banking or other personal information to someone whom you don't even know!
In recent times, new viruses that are disguised to look like a government program have been spreading to several computers worldwide. This unknown virus generally blocks users from accessing their desktop, documents and other programs until the user pays undefined money to the cyber criminals who created the virus. In the United States, the most popular instance of these new scams are the FBI Virus, Department of Justice Virus, and the United States Cyber Security virus.
While surfing the web, you may have seen pop-up message or advertisements offering a free PC scan or a free anti-virus or anything similar to it. Such software is referred to as Fake Antivirus, also known as Rogue Antivirus. Usually, these are Trojan horse, key logger, spyware, malware or other infected files that harm your computer and steal personal information once you click or install them. A recent study of 240 million web pages over the 13 months of study uncovered over 11,000 domains that were involved in fake antivirus distribution — which is roughly 15% of the total malware domains detected on the web.
