Growing popularity for Windows 10 has offered a tailormade Windows 10 activators scam for cybercriminals
Microsoft has given the opportunity to its user to join the Windows Insider Program so as to develop its new version of Windows 10 which can be user friendly and as well as technically efficient. Users who have joined this Technical Preview are constantly on the radar of these cyber-criminals.
Cyber-criminals are using YouTube by posting lots of fake windows 10 “activators” videos. If user activates this fake activator they would be directed to some illicit survey websites which may be a source of generating finance to these criminals. The website might lead users to click unwanted hidden ads and thus make illicit gains for the scam operators.
Some of these Windows 10 “activators” can lead the user to download unwanted applications which can lead to PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) and viruses. Some of the sites may even lead users to indefinite surveys in the name of downloading the Windows new version.
