Intelinet Internet Security now provided with the Malware label

Well, that was a really fast promotion for Intelinet Internet Security of well-known scammer Cashier Myricks.

Two days ago I blogged about the issue and rated his crappy product Intelinet Internet Security as “a very suspicious piece of software, promoted by scammers and crooks and therefore belonging to the crapware category.”

* With the help of the great DSLR community I can close file Intelinet Internet Security with a new rating for Cashier’s garbage:

“belonging to the category malware”

TonyKlein, valued DSLR member and acknowledged Security Expert, contributed my inquiry on DSLR with evidence of the malicious character of Intelinet Internet Security by a program check performed by VirusTotal, a trustable service that analyzes suspicious files and facilitates the quick detection of viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware detected by multiple antivirus engines. Here the link to the VirusTotal check report: http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/6a8a724a34aac5fa2b8e1fc305bf3883

Tony also delivered proof of detection and removal of the program by MBAM – Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, an excellent anti-malware application, reviewed by me some time ago. Here a MBAM detection report about Cashier Myricks malware: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r21642028-Intelinet-Internet-Security-definitive-malware~start=20

Again my advice: stay far away from crap/malware like Intelinet Internet Security. These malicious programs will hurt you and your PC.

* 2008-12-31: File Intelinet reopened for reason of the CNET/download.com refusal to remove this as malware classified piece of crapware from it’s download archive.
