Is "HackTool:Win32/AutoKMS" A Virus?

To Microsoft, HackTool:Win32/AutoKMS is a virus but to me, it is not. Why? because HackTool:Win32/AutoKMS can be used to "crack" or patch unregistered copies of a Microsoft software.

So instead of you spending hundreds of dollars to buy the license key of a Microsoft program, HackTool:Win32/AutoKMS will help you activate them by patching the unregistered copies you have installed.

Does this means that HackTool:Win32/AutoKMS is worth having in your computer?

It all depend on the source where you get it from. Why?
Because the source from which you get it from might attach a piece of code to it that might compromise your privacy. So instead of it to just crack the unregistered copies a a Microsoft software you have, it will also be leaking your data to it's source.

The point am trying to bring out it, yes, HackTool:Win32/AutoKMS can be useful if you do not want to spend on licensing your Microsoft software officially, but it can also serve as a security threat if you get it from a malicious source.
