Buy original copy of Windows® 7 to save your computer from trojans!
In this computer-savvy world, the issue of piracy is on hike. With the advent of any new technology, you can easily find its pirated version available at very low cost and sometimes for free also.
Before the release of Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC), its pirated version was made available in the market and on various bittorrent sites like Mininova.org and others. These websites clearly highlighted the warning of the potential risk to the users computers.
According to a post by a well known website, the time when, Microsoft was preparing to officially release Windows 7 RC on May 04, 2009, they were surprised to see that, its pirated copy was already leaked two weeks ago, on April 24, 2009. But this is not the end of the story, there was a shocking news reported by various users who have downloaded the upgrade of the new Windows 7 RC, that the leaked copies of the Windows 7 RC contains a large number of trojans and other types of malwares.
It was a warning for the users who were downloading the new RC builds of windows 7. This warning message was posted by Frank Fontaine on the Neowin.net discussion boards.
Various downloads carried a trojan in the setup EXE. The setup EXE is just a container which appears to be self extracting executing file. It contained Setup.exe and codec.exe.
These executable files were meant to contain trojans and other malwares that may harm your computer.
It is highly recommended and well advised not to use the leaked downloads and use the genuine copies to keep your computer healthy and working.
