Hexus have the full scoop on an activation circumvention method from another team of hackers which if it turns out to be for real, could have MS sweating BIGTIME. There's some more information on how it works over at this website too.
Last week's reports of a working hack for Vista product activation turned out to be naff. Microsoft shouldn't breathe a sigh of relief though. Somebody else has done it.
A quick bit of background. Late last week news of a 'brute force' keygen for Vista proliferated across the Internet. There were reports that after a few hours it could return a number of valid keys. Turns out the excitement drummed up was premature. It's too slow to be a practical route around Microsoft's activation technology. Before everyone knew it was naff, however, the thieves cheered at the prospect of free Vista, while journos chuntered at how activation only hassles legit users.
