Microsoft study: Pirated software injurious to data security

Easily available pirated software is injurious to data security, says a recent study carried out across India. 65% of the pirated software samples tested positive for more than one category of malware. 24% pirated samples of Windows XP Professional were found infected with “Trojan Back Orifice” which enables remote access and control of a device. What’s more, 90% of these samples gave a “false positive” result in anti-piracy checks, passing off as a genuine product.
