Windows 8 to use cloud-based piracy protection?

Posted on Thursday, December 02 2010 @ 00:15:31 CET by

Neowin reports the next release of Windows may implement cloud-based security features to prevent piracy:
It has been rumored that Microsoft is going to be integrating cloud based services into Window 8, so it only makes sense that they will also implement security features to thwart piracy that use cloud based services. Rumorpedia states that "Windows 8 will synchronize a couple of kernel files directly from Microsoft cloud servers, not only preventing privacy (at least temporary) but also allowing instant system updates for some of the components (no reboot required)."

The idea seems plausible as the vast majority of computers do connect to the Internet on a regular basis. There will also be a backup kernel file stored locally for instances where the computer can not contact Microsoft's servers.
