    LizaMoon is the code of SQL injection attacks. Web application vulnerabilities exploited to inject malicious code into the site. If visitors to the site affected, they will be redirected to the malicious web site, which tries to install a scareware file.

    This file produces a warning message to users that their computer is infected with the virus and offer antivirus software. Though a legitimate antivirus program will detect and remove malicious files

    Yeah, sure, like the XP anti-virus virus that was a bitch to get rid of. Only two anti-virus programs were coded for that virus and both were expensive. That's why I now back everything up fairly regularly, that way I have no issues with formating the hard drive and reloading the OS. On the machines where I'm running Linux I don't worry at all. :lol:
