Yes it is possible to buy a virus thinking it is an antivirus program.

It poses as virus protection, utilising names that seem legitimate, such as “Anti-Virus Pro” or “Defender Pro.” It displays on your screen at first as an antivirus scanner. It claims to have discovered malware on your computer and gives a link to download software that purportedly removes the infection. In truth, it isn’t detecting anything at all.

When you click on the link, you will be bombarded with pop-up alerts and cautions, and any utility software on your computer that you may use to block them will be disabled.
