What is Palladium Pro

Palladium Pro is classified as rogue security software, also known as scareware. Its design mimics that of legitimate antivirus software, but instead of providing protection, it exploits users’ fears of viruses and malware to manipulate them into purchasing a “full version” of the software. This full version is purported to remove non-existent threats that the software claims to have detected on the user’s computer. In reality, Palladium Pro offers no real security benefits and can significantly hinder system performance, potentially introduce additional malware, and compromise personal and financial information. Once installed, Palladium Pro undertakes a series of actions to convince the user of its legitimacy and the presence of threats on their computer. It performs fake scans that falsely report numerous viruses, spyware, and other security threats. Users are bombarded with continuous pop-up alerts and warnings about their system’s security. Palladium Pro may disable legitimate antivirus software, alter system settings, and block access to certain programs or the internet. Its ultimate goal is financial gain, prompting users to purchase a full version to remove the detected threats, which in reality, do not exist.
