We have been busy at Schrock Innovations repairing click-jacking victims who have become infected with the latest fake-alert variant called AV 360. These fake antivirus programs infect your computer and tell you that to fix your PC you need to pay them $50 for a fully functional version of their program.
This stuff is infecting people running McAfee, Norton Antivirus and Internet Security, AVG, Avast, and numerous other widely used programs (NOT Norton 360 – more on that later). I wanted to take a moment to describe what click jacking is, how you get infected with Antivirus 360, and what you can do to prevent it.
