A distribution kit of the previously announced Windows 11 appeared on the network with the installation of additional programs
The recently announced preview version of Windows 11 has intensified fraudulent activity. The demo version of the system can now be officially downloaded from the Microsoft website, but this does not prevent cybercriminals from misleading users.

An assembly with the name "86307_windows 11 build 21996.1 x64 + activator.exe" began to disperse on the network on extraneous Internet resources. The file name states that there is a version of Windows 11 21996.1 and an activator for it. To make it more convincing, the build size is also indicated, it is 1.75 GB.

Opening the installation wizard opens a completely standard window for the user, in which there is also an additional installer called "boot manager". The unscrupulous creators of the file managed to add to it an alleged license agreement, which states that in addition to the system itself, other sponsored programs indicated in the list will be installed on the PC. Usually, users do not read these texts and agree to install various software even after the system is warned about the unknown origin of the file. This is where the danger lies, because after installation, the computer may contain malicious applications and viruses that interfere with stable operation.

This example is not an isolated one, since there are other similar assemblies of new Windows with malicious programs on board on the Internet. To avoid collisions with such assemblies, Microsoft recommends downloading the official distribution from its website as part of the Windows Insider program.
