Live Security Platinum is a Dangerous Threat to Computers Everywhere

Live Security Platinum is a rogue spyware infection posing as a legitimate anti spyware program. Do not be fooled by this fake under any circumstances. It has infected countless numbers of computers and should be seen as a major threat.


Many personal computers have suddenly started showing windows filled with security warnings and an urgent need to buy an anti spyware program named Live Security Platinum. ”Beware of this fake anti spyware program. It will try and dupe victims into purchasing a license key. This is actually a scam, and no one should purchase it,” states Jimmy Walker from .

Live Security Platinum does a very good job of mimicking a legitimate anti spyware program. But all should be warned that this is not a real program, only a well designed scam. It even has a fancy interface designed for tricking its victims into believing it is a legitimate program. This new threat is yet another addition to the ever growing family of high tech spyware infections.

Computers can become infected with this dangerous spyware infection whenever browsing online without an antivirus and antispyware program. The infection can also come from browsing an unsafe website, or downloading a video codec to watch movies online.

This infection also spreads through web 2.0 sites like facebook and twitter. Although it’s important to know how computers are becoming infected, it is more important to know how to prevent and remove Live Security Platinum.

Once this program installs itself onto a computer, it will secure it’s position. It will embed itself into the registry, and also the hard drive. Once there, it will constantly bombard the user with pop-ups and fake security alerts designed to scare them into purchasing. – ”No one should buy this fake spyware program, it is a scam.” –

Money is not the only thing the makers of this spyware are after. Some infections can contain key-loggers which are used to record sensitive data like passwords, credit card and bank information, and maybe even social security numbers. The longer this infection remains on a computer, the greater the chance of identity theft for the user.

Once installed, there are only a couple of ways to remove Live Security Platinum. Users can either use a legitimate spyware removal program like Spyware Doctor, reformat their hard drives, or they can do it manually.

Anyone who has tried to manually remove Live Security Platinum from their system, may have discovered that it is a time consuming, frustrating and costly process. For some, successfully removing Live Security Platinum has only occurred after the system had been wiped completely clean or reformatted.
