"Malicious pseudo-environmentalists have come up with a new social engineering tactic aiming to improve the profit margins of their fake antivirus software releases – by promising to donate $2 from every purchase for saving the Amazonian green forests.

The new scareware template branded as “Green-AV Premier Edition 3.0” is pitched as the “World’s First Antivirus Which Cares About the Environment” and goes for a hefty price of $99.99, in comparison to other scareware brands whose price tags vary from $49 to $79." – Content courtesy of Scareware goes Green | Zero Day | ZDNet.com
