Looks like some people in the Avast forum are pissed that I pointed out that Avast missed a Rogue. Yes, I know Rogues are not technically malicious and are quite hard for an AV to detect, however I personally think that Rogue’s are the MOST malicious applications out there.
Rogue’s are designed to steal someones identity (and a few bucks) and they do it very well. That is malicious…very malicious and very very bad. It is the purpose of (almost all) malware being made today. I get the feeling that the anti-malware company’s are taking the stance of…”ehh….Rogues are not technically harmful to your computer so it’s not are fault…good luck!”
Again, I know they are hard to detect, but don’t just discount them as no biggy. They are the “biggest of the biggy’s” when you consider what they accomplish.
I wonder why Malwarebytes can detect every rogue out there….hmmmm…
