Brave Sentry Infection Follows Old Model

A new spyware infection has started showing up on our benches called Brave Sentry. The Brave Sentry and Brave Sentry 2.0 infections are modeled after the SpyFalcon, SpySheriff, and SpywareQuake infection models.

This particular infection is usually delivered when someone using your computer clicks on a pop-up message that states the computer is already infected with spyware. The message claims it can remove the spyware for you. When users click on the message, they are instructed to download Brave Sentry to clean their systems.

Once Brave Sentry i installed, it will run a ‘scan” that ALWAYS finds a ton of infections, whether they are there or not. To the users surprise, the software then begins generating pop up messages demanding the user purchase the commercial version of the software for $50 to continue the removal process.

Obviously, this is a scam, but attempts to remove the Brave Sentry software do not eliminate the pop up messages that appear almost constantly. We have devised a removal method for this infection. The complete instruction to remove Brave Sentry and Brave Sentry 2.0 from your computer can be found here.
