Fake Windows 10 Email Notice!

Postby Karlsweldt » Sun Aug 02, 2015 4:49 pm

Just heard news that the scammers are already sending a farce Windows 10 upgrade notice!
A security team at Cisco® discovered the scam. The phony Email looks to be from Microsoft®, and may look authentic.
But it has a "loader" that could put malware on your system.. holding it for ransom! "Ransomeware"!
You will get a small notice on your desktop about the upgrade. That is the only official notice.
