Windows Genuine Advantage Phish

Symantec have recently published a report about a Trojan called Trojan.Kardphisher. It will try to fool the unsuspecting victim into believing that Microsoft is requesting re-activation of your copy of Windows and to do this you have to supply credit card details.

Lets get one thing straight.... Microsoft does NOT request credit card information for WGA activation, or any other activation that I'm aware of. Please don't get caught out by this, keep your anti virus and anti malware programs up to date and run regular scans, if you need help then there is a list of sites that can help you here.
