    A Trojan virus has already been written and released for Microsoft’s new operating system. The malware, posing under the name “Windows Vista All Versions Activation 21.11.06”, pretends to be a crack to lets users avoid activating their copy of Vista but in reality it carries a the Trojan Trojan-PSW.Win32.LdPinch.aze. Apparently most virus scanners can detect this Trojan but for some reason Norton and Nod32 let it slip by them.
