Windows 7 Ultimate on sale for $1

Published by at 9:46 pm under Hacking for money

Oh my, Chinese hackers may have cracked Windows 7.  No need to connect to Microsoft activation server:

It must have been a complicated process, but in a nutshell, hackers reportedly used the leaked ISO file to get hold of the activation certificate that Microsoft digitally signed for the original equipment manufacturer, or OEM version of Windows 7. It’s rumored that the key that got hacked is one that can be used to activate multiple OEM-branded installations, such as Dell’s, HP’s, or, of course, Lenovo’s.
