AnyProtect virus

AnyProtect by CMI Limited (also known as Any Protect) is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and possible malware found in the adware and spyware categories of computer threats. Potential AnyProtect malware is promoted as an unlimited storage backup service and program. AnyProtect utilizes aggressive and misleading marketing practices in order to scare victims into purchasing their services.

Once AnyProtect is installed, the program will begin to scan the infected computer for files to backup online. The program will then detail personal files, data size, system stability, data age, and system age. If a user wishes to close the program, a “Before you close…” pop-up message will appear that claims the computer has a numerical amount of files “at risk.” This can be seen as an unethical marketing practice due to the fact that this program is used for backup purposes and is no way qualified to measure the level of risk on a computer system based on a number of files and data.
