Volcano Security Suite

Volcano Security Suite is a fake security software installed from fake online antivirus scanners. It replaces Smart Virus Eliminator rogue.

Both are coming from a big family: Windows Entreprise Defender, Windows PC Defender, Windows Additional Guard, Windows Guard Pro, Ultimate System Guard, Smart Virus Eliminator, Windows Protection Suite, Windows System Suite, Windows Security Suite, Malware Destructor 2009, FastAntivirus, MalwareCatcher, VirusShield, Extra Antivirus, Virus Sweeper, Ultra Antivir 2009, Virusdoctor, VirusMelt, VirusAlarm. Usually, the new comer replaces the old one, but here, the latest rogues are in the wild simultaneously.

Volcano Security Suite displays false alerts and warning messages to scare users pushing them to purchase a full license.

If your system is infected with Volcano Security Suite, follow the Bleeping Computer removal guide.
