    Windows Activation Phished We don't have to pay to "activate" a copy of Windows

    Symantec is warning users of the new trojan horse that phished Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage.

    Users should KNOW that activating a copy of Windows is free (online activation or using some toll-free numbers).

    If ever you see got that Windows asking for credit card information to activate the copy of Windows, DO NOT enter your credit card details. Run a scan using antivirus or antimalware program. You're maybe infected with Trojan.Kardphisher!
