New version of Panda Cloud Antivirus… Oh wait!
New 'DarkAngle' Trojan masquerading as Panda Cloud Antivirus Uses stealth techniques to evade detection and continue to steal your information
It tries to pass itself off as our Panda Cloud Antivirus (www.cloudantivirus.com)
Once run, DarkAngle logs all commands entered by the user and sends them to an external server. In addition, it loads up every time the user reboots the computer, making sure it logs the victim’s data at all times. Furthermore, it uses stealth techniques to bypass antivirus engines.
Panda Cloud Antivirus is one of the best free antivirus programs available, as shown by the millions of users who rely on it to protect their PCs from the cloud. Cyber-criminals know this and try to exploit the software’s popularity to spread their creations. Actually, this is not the first time that they have done something like this, nor will it be the last. For this reason, we’d like to take this opportunity to warn you and advise you that if you want to use Panda Cloud Antivirus, you should download it from its official website www.cloudantivirus.com, or the product’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/

Since 1990, PandaLabs, Panda Security’s malware research laboratory, has been working to detect and classify malware in order to protect consumers and companies against new Internet threats. To do so, PandaLabs uses Collective Intelligence, a cloud-based proprietary system that leverages the knowledge gathered from Panda’s user community to automatically detect, analyse and classify the more than 73,000 new malware strains that appear every day. This automated malware classification is complemented through the work of an international team with researchers specialized each in a specific type of malware (viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware and other attacks) to provide global coverage.
