Sure, it isn't malware that's designed with a malicious purpose. It's not being installed on your computer with the aim of stealing your data

According to the default privacy settings, that statement is false.

How Windows 10 became malware

Any software — even a premier operating system — that gets onto computers through stealth means has crossed over to the dark side.

I need to learn more about Windows 10 for reasons similar to Mike's. My plan is to use Virtual Box but I'm not yet sure Microsoft's activation will allow that.

My Laptop's Windows 7 partition has the Enterprise edition installed and it's not affected by this particular Microsoft Malware.

Pressing the X will close the window, as it should.

If nothing else, after July 29th, it should stop (unless they extend the opportunity for the free upgrade period).

Or, maybe they will dig around your computer for credit card info, charge you, then give you the upgrade.

The first thought that popped in mind when I saw a link to the supposed Mt.Gox database dump was, what a perfect opportunity to infect computers and steal from people. I'm extremely pissed about Mark Karpeles blatant theft of my money and would love to have some evidence to back up my accusations, certainly the rest of his victims are thinking something similar.

Analysis of, Malware from the MtGox leak archive

A few days ago the personal blog and Reddit account of MTgox CEO, Mark Karpeles, were hacked. Attackers used them to post a file, MtGox2014Leak.zip, which they claim contains valuable database dumps and specialized software for remote access to MtGox data. But this application is actually malware created to search and steal Bitcoin wallet files from their victims. It seems that the whole leak was invented to infect computers with Bitcoin-stealer malware that takes advantage of people keen interest in the MtGox topic.
