Hackers will never back down to any task that could grant them a quick pay day. To support that very notion, hackers have released a new fake security program called BigSeekPro. BigSeekPro is not much different from other fake security apps, or what we call rogue anti-spyware programs. BigSeekPro does the usual display of fake alert messages and returns falsified system scan results. Basically, these methods are used as aggressive scare techniques and may persuade computer users to purchase a full version of BigSeekPro. Buying BigSeekPro will do nothing for you except continually aggravate you after finding out that you just wasted money on a worthless security program. It is highly advisable that you just remove BigSeekPro and never trust it for security issues on your PC.
