What is Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security?
Trend Micro Internet Security is an antivirus/Internet security program which includes antivirus software, web threat protection, browser cookie removal, parental controls and a computer firewall. Trend Micro's Smart Protection Network deploys bots to verify websites visited by users of Trend Micro Internet Security. While users of the software are visiting a website, the Trend Micro bots break security measures and rules specified by the website administrator and display malware characteristics. The antivirus software uses the trust websites have for users with administrative and other privileges to circumvent website security measures to allow Trend Micro's bots the opportunity to download privileged information or to inject files to the website.
