Re: Torrent / Cracks / Freeware download Viper Malware warning

Over the past 24 hours, after downloading and installing software from what appears to be free software and crack sites, people suddenly find that they are locked out of their computer before Windows starts.

Serves them B W right ..... Perhaps it comes from Microsoft?

Re: Torrent / Cracks / Freeware download Viper Malware warning

Seriously doubt MS has any interest in something this ignorant. Most good A/V will detect and stop cracked software dead in its tracks. Even when being run or installed with admin privileges. Those good old freebies are like enticing a child with a lollypop. Torrents? Yeah, I'd take the chance of getting a part of a download from someone who has an infected machine and/or crafted things to do exactly what is happening with the lockouts. Not on your life.
