The hack, means you can get Windows 7 without the need for a product activation key. And this doesn’t really mean that Windows 7will be confirmed as legal, but it does enable you to keep using the product for unlimited time.
Microsoft also confirmed that they know about the technique and are working on a workaround to prevent future iterations of their activation procedure from being exploited.
Microsoft spokesperson told:
We’re aware of this workaround and are already working to address it.
Microsoft advised customers to avoid using illegal copies of Windows and to check their software is genuine, warning rogue software often contained malware.
Hackers have also devised tools that turn off any pop-ups or reminders that say the system has not been registered or the trial period has expired.
Now what? Is this another challenge for Microsoft to prevent these kind of hacks? Or hackers are much much efficient to hack the newly released operating system?
