Security firm Kaspersky warned on Friday that crooks were exploiting people overeager to get their hands on the Microsoft operating system update, due for fall release, with fake installers.

“Although Microsoft has made the process of downloading and installing Windows 11 from its official website fairly straightforward, many still visit other sources to download the software, which often contains unadvertised goodies from cybercriminals (and isn’t necessarily Windows 11 at all),” Kaspersky wrote.
