Don't trust this fake Microsoft email

Have you received an email from Microsoft lately? More specifically, have you received an email claiming to be from the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center? If you have, don't click on anything! I repeat, don't click on anything! It could be a fake email loaded with tricky malware that can fool automatic sandbox analysis, hide from virus detection and uses the Tor network to steal your data.

Normally, fake emails are pretty easy to spot. I've shown you what to look for before, like misspellings, grammar mistakes, incorrect "to" and "from" lines ... the list goes on.  But this one claiming to be from Microsoft isn't your average fake email.

Microsoft often sends its customers emails that include license information and they are usually personally addressed to the customer. This fake email looks almost the same, and it's probably addressed to you personally as well. But it's not from Microsoft.
