    Trojan.Kardphisher is a Trojan horse program that deactivates genuine and previously activated copies of Windows following the infection. Security Company Symantec has warned on the spreading of Trojan.Kardphisher, and revealed that the malicious program is not a technical masterpiece, but that it is focused on social engineering techniques. The catch is that the malicious code does not actually deactivate genuine copies of Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, either activated or not.
