  1. Watch out for fake USPS delivery emails!

    virus_8.jpg?w=914


    We at SUPERAntiSpyware have been alerted to scam emails hitting users claiming to be from the US Postal Service (USPS) that contains a link that will infect them with malware. One of the emails being used by this scam is notice@ussp(DOT)com

    The subject line of the email will typically be titled “Delivery notification – Parcel delivery *NUMBER* failed” containing a message that the user please call the number on the shipping notice we left at your doorstep (which there will be none!) to arrange a new delivery, and a link which you can view the delivery notice online, on the USPS website.

    This is a fake link to a malware infested website.

    If you see a link in a suspicious email such as this do not click the links or open the attachments no matter how innocent they sound. If it claims to be from an official organization, call them and ask if the email is legit. Better safe than sorry!

     


  2. So you are saying the scheduled scan now works?

    I recommend writing down your Lifetime Registration code, the code can be found in the "Help & Information" section of your SUPERAntiSpyware Application before you uninstall and reinstall the software. When you reinstall the software, when asked for a registration code, simply enter in the lifetime code you previously wrote down.


  3. Hello -

    Have you tried uninstalling the software completely from your PC, rebooting, then reinstalling SUPERAntiSpyware? I would give that a try and see if your scheduled scan kicks in. If it does not, try to set a new scheduled scan and see if the scheduling error is still prevalent.

     


  4. Hello -

    If this is a Task Scheduler Error, this has more to do with your Windows OS then it does with our software. The Task Scheduler is a part of the operating system. When version of Windows OS are you currently running on your PC?

     


  5. For a scheduled scan to complete, two conditions must be met:

    • You must be logged in as the Windows user who the scan is scheduled under.
    • The computer must either be on, or hibernated/suspended with the appropriate wake-up options selected.

    If the above conditions are true, and the scan does not start as expected, confirm that you can manually start a scan of the same type, and that the scan runs to completion. If there's a problem with the scan, resolve that first.

    If the manual scan works, but the scheduled scan does not, try scheduling the scan again for a few minutes in the future. Make sure you schedule the scan for daily, not weekly, when testing! Make sure the "Check for Definition Updates before scanning" option is checked, and the "Show program window while scanning" option is checked. Those options will ensure that something visible happens when the scan starts and ends.


  6. “The HoeflerText Font Wasn’t Found” Google Chrome Malware Scam – What it is and how to avoid it!

    You are browsing the web and accidentally land on a website with nonsensical characters instead of letters and you receive a prompt to download a missing font in order to read the website. You are told in order to fix the error and display the text, you have to update the “Chrome Font Pack”. Whatever you do, please do not click that blue Update button!

    Fake Google Chrome Prompt asking you to install the malware

    It is a scam designed to trick users into installing malware onto their systems. This malware is ranging from Ransomware, to Trojans, to various adware bundles.

    How to avoid it

    The fake dialogue box informing you that the “The HoeflerText Font Wasn’t Found” will claim you are using Chrome version 53 even if you are not using that version, which tells you something isn’t right and that the prompt you are seeing is fake.

    Make sure you are using the latest version of Google Chrome which you can download by clicking here

    Make sure you are also using the latest version of SUPERAntiSpyware with Real-Time Protection enabled, a feature only available for SUPERAntiSpyware Professional users.


  7. Tax Season is here – Watch out for Identity Stealing Spyware!

    Keep your personal information safe this tax season by doing a Free scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition

    We want to remind everyone that tax season is the time of increased attacks from spyware, various methods of phishing , and scams. Spyware and Malware authors significantly increase their activity during the tax season in order to try to steal data and withdraw money from bank accounts, steal credit cards, passwords, and other malicious acts.

    During this tax season its important to do a few things to help protect yourself online:

    1) Make sure your Operating System and software applications such as web browsers and email clients are up to date.

    2) Run a Complete Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware regularly with the latest updates, at least twice a week during this period of increased activity.

    3) Be cautious before visiting strange websites, or opening strange email attachments. Think before you click!

    4) Manually erase, or use privacy software, to delete sensitive data from you PC. Spyware cannot steal what isn’t there!

    5) Lookout for spam phishing email impersonating government, bank, or tax company officials asking for sensitive information.

    Do you have any security recommendations that help you stay safe during the tax season? Feel free to leave a comment below!
