  12. Rogue security software, often referred to as scareware, is one of the biggest challenges that computer users are faced with right now. Taking the form of legitimate-looking anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-malware products, these rogue applications look to be beneficial from a security perspective but provide little or no security, generate misleading alerts, or attempt to lure users into participating in fraudulent transactions - blurring the lines between genuine software and applications that put you in harm’s way. In order to help you clearly see what programs are considered rogue – and avoid them – Lavasoft Malware Labs is proud to introduce a brand new site: the Rogue Gallery. You'll find The Rogue Gallery on the Lavasoft website at: [url="http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/rogues/latest"]http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/rogues/latest[/url]
