Windows Product Activation Compromised

[[Windows Product Activation compromised]]

The Windows Product Activation (WPA) that is implemented in the current RC1 of Windows XP shows some serious bugs which will open the way for hackers to avoid the whole system.

Apparently the programmers of the Windows Product Activation did not work carefully enough. In the course of experiments with several hardware components, product keys and especially the central file wpa.dbl some interesting weak points showed up. Together with peculiarities in generating the ID of the hardware this will open the way for hackers to avoid the Activation completely.

It is doubtful that Microsoft will have the time to replace the XP Product Activation system, without causing a great delay in the scheduled release of the product. The ball is clearly in Microsofts side of the court.

To find out how in detail the Activation works and how Windows XP calls up the hardware to force the Activation please follow the source link from the links section.

I know hackers, I know crackers, and I know some who fit opposite definitions and still identify as what you want to differentiate.What do you have to say about that?It all comes down on what people want to be.The trade.. is still the trade. Let's not bicker over our abilities.
