Rogue Adware Pro

In recent times rogue internet security programs are circulating over the internet that mimics the popular security program for confusing users. These programs pose security and financial threat to the users (examples here / here / here). One such program is Adware Pro detected by ESET that looks like popular application Ad-Aware from Lavasoft (see image below)

Adware Pro is a rogue security program that installs malware on your system. As shown the image below it tries to deceive you through a name similar to the real one and offering a free download of the program. If you installed and scanned your PC with this program, it displays exaggerated scan results and forces you to buy it for removing the threats.

This rogue program is detected by NOD32 as Win32/Adware.AntivirusPro. So it is advisable that, before downloading and installing such programs it is always essential to verify the reliability of the program. [Via – Eset]

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
