OXYGEN 3, E-bulletin on IT security

"Anti-Virus-1: A new fake antivirus Anti-Virus-1 is adware, specifically a 'fake antivirus'. As with all such adware, it is designed to simulate a scan of the computer, supposedly detecting thousands of strains of (non-existent) malware. The end aim is to sell users a pay version of the fake antivirus in order to eliminate the threats."

So many things to watch out for online.
