KMSPico tool can be downloaded from various websites, the most popular one is even presented as "official". In fact, this is not a legitimate tool and is created by cyber criminals - it has nothing to do with Microsoft. In some cases, anti-virus programs do not even allow saving the downloaded KMSPico installation file (installer) on computers and blocks users from opening it. In other cases, security suites detect threats when this tool is launched. In this particular case, they detect the secoh-qad.exe file. The same applies to activated Windows operating systems (that include an illegal activation tool) - anti-virus programs start detecting secoh-qad.exe or other files as threats related to KMSPico. There are many cases whereby various malicious files are disguised as KMSPico activation tools and, if opened, infect computers with high-risk malware. Typically, users cannot launch software activation tools ("cracks") when their anti-virus programs are enabled. By disabling them, they often allow various threats to bypass detection and cause computer infections.
KMSPico is probably the most popular Windows/MS Office activation tool, however, there other tools. Furthermore, there are various KMSPico versions distributed by different cyber criminals. Some of these versions might be promoted with malicious intent. They download and install high-risk malicious programs that could lead to serious problems. In many cases, these activation tools are used to install cryptocurrency mining programs, which use computer resources to generate revenue for cyber criminals - they reduce computer performance and increase electricity consumption.

How to avoid installation of malware?
Be careful with received emails, especially if they contain attachments or web links. If an email is sent from an unknown, suspicious address, and is irrelevant, do not open anything. The safest way to download software is using official, trustworthy websites. Avoid the sources mentioned above. We advise that you update installed software using implemented functions or tools provided by the official software developers only, and not third party update tools. No software/operating system should be activated with tools that supposedly do this free of charge - it illegal and often leads to computer infections with viruses. Have reputable anti-spyware or anti-virus software installed and keep it enabled at all times. If you believe that your computer is already infected, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate infiltrated malware.
