Windows Vista activation cracked

Posted on Tuesday, December 12 2006 @ 15:42:09 CET by

Microsoft made Windows Vista more difficult to pirate than Windows Vista but it looks like this wasn't really effective as hackers have already announced that they have cracked the volume license activation of Vista.
To simplify the task of activating many copies of Vista, Microsoft offers corporate users special tools, among them Key Management Service (KMS), which allows a company to run a Microsoft-supplied authorization server on its own network and activate Vista without contacting Microsoft for each copy.

The software, Microsoft.Windows.Vista.Local.Activation.Server-MelindaGates, lets users spoof that KMS process, allowing them to activate copies of the enterprise editions of Vista, its creators say. The hacked download can be found on various file-sharing sites.
