Windows Vista crack is actually a trojan

Posted by Xavier Ashe on December 12, 2006

Malware makers are starting to take advantage of the number of users
searching for cracks for the pirated copies of Vista floating around.

A new download has started circulating around the crack boards
called “Windows Vista All Versions Activation 21.11.06”. It purports to
be an activation crack for any version of Vista.

However, the file is actually a trojan-carrier which will install Trojan-PSW.Win32.LdPinch.aze onto your PC.

BitTorrent users who posted reviews of the crack said that a number
of antivirus programs detected the malware, though Norton AntiVirus and
NOD32 did not.
