Security Bytes 2015 is an anti-virus program that infects your computer and, basically, blocks your entire system and prevents you from taking any course of action, unless you pay a fee. The fee will allow you to buy a security system, which would supposedly cleanse your system of all the threats found by Security Bytes 2015. Don’t be fooled by this notification! In reality, the program tricks you into paying money for something that you do not need and is of absolute no use for you. Security Bytes 2015 is utterly unreliable, because it is incapable of doing system scans.

How did I get infected with Security Bytes 2015?

Security Bytes 2015 is a typical bogus anti-virus program that slithers into your system via the usual deceptive methods, as it doesn’t need your permission to enter your system. Also, more often than not, the infection is passed on through the use of compromised websites. Once you click on them, you get the not-so-exclusive opportunity to see how a program that is not capable of doing system scans, not only successfully does one, but also finds a ton of potential threats that your regular AV program missed. Like, Calculator, Skype, Notepad; basically everything on your PC. Sounds suspicious, right? Well, that’s because it’s all a stunt designed to trick you into believing the infection and paying for the program. What you should know is that all Braviax family programs are incapable of doing system scans, and you’ve guessed it – Security Bytes 2015 is part of the Braviax family.

Why is Security Bytes 2015 dangerous?

You should be wary of Security Bytes 2015, because as soon as its installation process is over, it goes to work. First it scans your system, and its scans always show that every program on your computer is full of Trojans that can do serious damages. Therefore, its next course of action is to prevent you from being able to open and use these infected programs, i.e. all the programs on your PC. The best advice you can follow is this: do NOT trust Security Bytes 2015 and make sure you get rid of it as soon as it first makes an appearance. By doing so, you’ll save yourself a lot of potential troubles and frustration.
