comment Still receiving windows XP updates… Is this expected behavior?
@ColeJohnson I agree that malware wouldn't ask for permission to install but the idea that malware doesn't try to look like native windows is dangerously wrong. It does try to look like native windows, to mislead people into using it, just like phishing emails try to look like actual emails from eBay/PapPal/your bank.
