Rogue antivirus program comes with tech support

In an effort to boost sales, sellers of a fake antivirus product known as Live PC Care are offering their victims live technical support. According to researchers at Symantec, once users have installed the program, they see a screen, falsely informing them that their PC is infected with several types of malware.

That’s typical of this type of program. What’s unusual, however, is the fact that the free trial version of Live PC Care includes a big yellow "online support" button. Clicking on the button connects the victim with an agent, who will answer questions about the product via instant message." – Content courtesy of Rogue antivirus program comes with tech support
