Detectorsafetyoptimizer has a Malicious and Fake Anti-virus

I have received a spoofed e-mail yesterday indicating it came from one of my contacts. The e-mail only contained a link (see below), and if you click on the link you will be redirected to a malicious website with a fake anti-virus. This malicious website displayed a false or fake report of viruses and spyware, and asked if I wanted to download an anti-virus to remove the viruses it had detected.
