FakeSysDef Products Information

 Win32/FakeSysdef is a family of programs that claim to scan for hardware defects related to system memory, hard drives and over-all system performance. They scan the system, show fake hardware problems, and offer a solution to defrag the hard drives and optimize the system performance. They then inform the user that they need to pay money to download the fix module and to register the software in order to repair these non-existent hardware problems. One of the first variants was distributed as program named "HDD Defragmenter" hence the name "FakeSysdef" or "Fake System Defragmenter".

Win32/FakeSysdef has been distributed with several different names or aliases. The user interface and some other details vary to reflect each variant's individual branding.

The branding strategy may look legitimate to computer users as the names are usually a combination of technical words such as "HDD", "Disk", "Memory" and action words such as "Scanner", "Defragmenter", "Diagnostics", "Repair", and "Fix". Currently observed variants of FakeSysdef include the following:
