Hackers have altered a Microsoft computer program and turned it into a blackmailer. This refers to the service for editing videos Windows Movie Maker. Website ESET reports that at the beginning of this year, Microsoft stopped supporting the program and blocked it for download on the relevant website.
As it turned out, the service is still in trend. This took advantage of hackers. They offer users a working version of the program, but not free, as did the manufacturer. The “modernized” version is required for their installation is almost 30 dollars – five cents.
