Fake Windows Activation is actually a ransomware Trojan

A new type of method is being used by hackers to infect unsecure devices. Hackers have spread infected files on the web, and once those infected files are downloaded and executed, the device user will get a message that the Windows operating system license has expired and that they will need to call the number ‘1-888-303-5121’ to reactive the license.

Your Windows License has Expired, Please get a new one by calling on 1-888-303-5121 from Store Representative

But it is important to know that the message is not actually from Microsoft. If you get the message ‘Your Windows License has Expired, Please get a new one by calling on 1-888-303-5121 from Store Representative’, it is strongly recommended to shut down your computer directly.
