Microsoft: Pirated Windows detected on computers

According to the Economic Times, Microsoft traded between May and June in a computer market in Asia to determine how many of them had malware and fake licenses Windows.

The results of the investigations were particularly worrying as well all PCs purchased in South Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand contained pirated software. India followed where it found that 91% of computers contained malware.

In addition, the publication highlights that 83% of all Microsoft computers sold in Asia did not have approved Windows licenses.

Mary Jo Schrade, Assistant to the General Council and Director of the Asia Digital Crimes Association, told Microsoft's headquarters in Singapore that online criminals are constantly evolving their techniques with the primary aim of avoiding security measures. In fact, one of their tactics is the integration of malware into pirated software on other computers, thereby gaining access to users' personal data and violating their rights.

Clearly, pirated software is not a threat only to users using their personal devices. At the same time, their clients and, in general, all those who come into contact with them are threatened, as their personal information and data are compromised.

Microsoft has not made any formal statement as to whether it is planning any legal action against merchants selling pirated copies of Windows but is quite likely to take drastic action given the previously reported acts.
