Security Defender developers claims that this is an antivirus program, which will protect your computer and ensure the security of your browsing on the web. Sorry to disappoint you, but it’s a lie. Security Defender is a rogue program, so-called fake AV, which is using deceptive messages about viruses to get money from you.

If you notice any signs of Security Defender presence on you PC, it means that your now your computer is vulnerable for other malicious encroachments.
