Security software vendor McAfee last week launched its new Consumer Threat Alert program, a blog and e-mail subscription service dedicated to keeping consumers up-to-date on the latest malware and online scams circulating throughout cyberspace.

The program's initial advisory was a primer on scareware, also known as rogue software or fake antivirus software, which preys on users' naiveté and their instinctive response to what appears to be a legitimate security shortcoming with their PCs or mobile devices.

With cyberattacks on the rise, a well-informed business and consumer populace is one of the best weapons against such threats to security.

Our sister site, Datamation has the full scareware prevention story.
