SpySheriff Misc Information

Name: SpySheriff
Category: Misc
Advice: Remove
Risk: Elevated Risk Elevated threats are usually threats that fall into the range of adware in which data about a user's habits are tracked and sent back to a server for analysis without your consent or knowledge.
Description: SpySheriff is a purported anti-spyware application to scan for and remove spyware from users' computers.

SpySheriff is known to be distributed through exploits that also download adware/spyware on users' computers without notice or consent. When SpySheriff is downloaded through an exploit, it puts a red icon in the system tray and shows a false warning that the computer is infected with spyware. SpySheriff's free scan reports multiple false positives in order to frighten the user into paying for the program. SpySheriff is set to load at Windows start up. It may also display pop-up warnings of spyware on the computer as a scare tactic.
