Hackers disguise Cryptbot malware as Windows activator

Software can be expensive. So instead of buying a license for the app, some people decided to pirate the app. But according to the Red CanaryHackers are spreading Cryptbot malware using fake versions of popular software pirated tools.

The tool in question is called KMS Pico, and Red Canary states that it is used to “activate all features of Microsoft Windows and Office products without actually owning a license key.” Security tools usually block KMS Pico, which often comes with steps to disable these protections, leaving your system vulnerable to malware.
