Wi-fi is a wireless data networking protocol, which allows for PCs and laptops to access the internet, within a given area or "hotspot", via a high frequency wireless local area network (WLAN). The term Wi-Fi was coined by the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA) as another name for IEEE 802.11b networking standard. WECA is still involved in certifying new wireless modems in order to verify that they are fully compatible with the standard.

The SpyCrush Threat

Those who are in the market for an anti-virus or anti-spyware program, which will protect their computer from all the traps out there, are at an unusual risk that they may not be aware of. On the web, there are a number of rogue security programs being advertised and they will do anything but protect a computer. The cold truth is that they are designed to trick web users and if downloaded, they will slow down their computers, bombard them with irritating pop-up ads, and more importantly, they will often compromise their privacy.

SpyCrush is one of these "fake" anti-spyware programs to be on the lookout for. With a trojan, SpyCrush will install itself on your computer and unless it's removed immediately, it can do tremendous harm to your system. SpyCrush is likely a clone of VirusBurst.

After all, it looks just like VirusBurst and if you read the user agreement, VirusBurst is actually in it. Essentially, this newer version of VirusBurst is a form of "ransomware," because if a web surfer does install it, instead of it scanning their computer for spyware and viruses and promptly removing them, it will actually issue warnings titled "Security Alert!" which advise them to then download the full version of SpyCrush to correct the situation.
