Hackers today are now taking advantage of Microsoft’s Windows 10 upgrade by sending spam emails to many people to eventually hack their data.
Security specialists are cautioning around a flood of fake spam messages with malicious connections, marked, as though they’re legitimate copies of the new program.
The connections contain a “ransomware” program that, when opened, locks all the information on a PC and demands for payment to unlock them.
Specialists at Cisco Frameworks say the messages are intended to resemble an official overhaul notice from Microsoft Corp., yet a few words have arbitrary, strange letters and punctuation.
Another important note: Microsoft says its upgrade can be seen with a notification on their PC screens and not by means of email – when an immediate Web download is accessible. Specialists caution against clicking any link or tapping on documents that come from unauthorized sources.
