You don't know what you're in for MS-Virus
I just detected a virus, Not unusual at all,but for me highly unusual as I can count them on my fingers of one hand. This one was from MS.Technet found by defender after problems with Defender, Firewall.
I had only just downloaded Windows 8.1 CD again and reinstalled Windows last month. Was browsing Technet and saw this:~
"A simple tool to extract and use the Windows activation key from BIOS"
The css the pages has is:~
I have a habit of saving the Html to my hard disk as a reference, so had the reference in another location
I had just before it being found done a System restore.
Today after a system restore as my system was refusing to run Process monitor and fireall advanced and I scanned With Defender on Win8.1 And found:~
"Trojan:win32/Occamy.B" in the zip file "Technet OEMKEYEXTRACT.ZIP"
file dated "6/04/2018:5:15 PM" - that's when I saved it to my PC.
I have a screenshot if someone needs it.
I consider that if Technet is passing out viruses or if they cannot detect hacks on their website then we're all doomed. Also that Microsoft is still acting anti-competitively by denying many the ability to restore their old system pushing them onto Windows 10 with T&C of no Workaround. Doesn't want people to access their Pre-Windows 10 OEM operating system.
I have not deleted the Trojan from quarantine yet, and have it if required.
