Today, I received an email in my MS Mac under the title “Your Services Agreement made Clearer,” which states, “In most cases, a permanent blocking of the Xbox Live account does not remove your games or purchases. All previously downloaded games, apps or features that can be used offline remain accessible to the blocked account. However, content or features that require online services cannot be used by the account. B the ability to acquire new content and, without a specific Xbox One console, which is the xbox One console, the ability to download content again via other accounts. Office 2016 Extended Support works 10/2025 The technique of creating malicious versions of legitimate e-mail messages sent by trusted companies is very old. However, its continued use by cyber criminals suggests that it is still effective. The Microsoft Services agreement is an agreement between you and Microsoft (or one of its affiliates) that governs your use of Microsoft Consumer online products and services. Edit – Looks like they`ve updated the website necessarily. Although, it says a lot the same. “This email is a legitimate announcement regarding updates to the microsoft services agreement and communication settings,” said a Microsoft program manager for email technology support, who identifies himself as Karla L, on the Microsoft Answers website in response to a user who inquired about the authenticity of the email message. I have MS Office 16 on Mac, but it`s installed in the computer and in everything that matters is mine, as in “I own it,” not as in “I graciously provided it as a service for simple mortals like me by MS.” So I have “Office,” but as nothing I don`t have access to “365.” The completely modified agreement, which is related to the beginning of the MS article, itself bound at the top of me, generally does not list “Office” among “services,” but only “Office 365” and “Office 365” according to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. I just received this email from Microsoft and decided to pass it on to those who might not know about these changes: www.microsoft.com/en-us/servicesagreement/upcoming-updates.aspx hackers are distributing unauthorized electronic notifications about changes made to Microsoft`s service agreement to trick people into visiting malicious sites using a recent Java exploit to infect their computers with malware.
What`s funny is that I haven`t installed any MS “services” on my Mac. But I have a “product.” Except that it is a piece of software to soon reach EOL (read more, in an instant). And while I have Windows 7 in my PC, it`s now an outdated system as far as MS is concerned. I don`t subscribe to the agreement proposed by MS to extend the lifespan and I don`t even fix it with 0day support micropatches. I isolated it from the Internet and for communication between it and the rest of the world, I use the Linux operating system now on pc co-installed with Win 7. I use Win 7 to run older application software and occasionally older files that I still have to work with. Blackhole was recently updated to include a new exploit for Java 7, which appeared online last Monday. Links in malicious notifications from Microsoft Services Agreement show on blackhole infected sites using the new Java exploit to install a variant of Zeus financial malware, McRee said. For more than a year.
