Beware of Windows 11 Alpha! A new malware campaign targeting users
The campaign targets people who are not familiar with Microsoft's upcoming operating system. It reportedly uses a Word document, which is themed after Windows 11 Alpha, and asks users to open it. If a user does not suspect anything is wrong, he will activate the code, which will further allow cybercriminals to steal people's financial information.
Anomaly security researchers reported that an image may appear with Windows 11 Alpha asking users to "Enable Editing" and "Enable Content" to begin the next phase of activity. Users will be asked to make the document compatible with the current operating system they are using.
It should be noted that Windows 11 will release on October 5th and is currently available to Windows Insider Program members, developers, and beta testers.
