“Windows license locked!” Ransomware

“Windows license locked!” is a fake warning (ransomware) that impersonates Windows Product Activation wizard and states that you may be a victim of software counterfeiting. It also states that all data stored on your computer will be locked for security purposes. You have to phone one of the numbers listed to obtain an activation key. Scammers claim that the call from your country is free of charge but I’m sure this is going to cost some money.

“Windows license locked!” ransomware is distributed through the use of browser hijackers, porn websites and other misleading web pages. “Windows license locked!” ransomware masquerades as Flash Player or web browser update.

This is a complete scam! It’s just a fake warning designed to scam people out of their money.
It’s available in English and some other languages.

Quick Heal detects this malware as “Trojan.FakeWarn.d”.
