Hackers outwit Windows® 7 Activation
Hackers have find the way that how to take a step towards Windows 7 activation process after a long battle with Microsoft.
An article published on internet says that hackers have got a pair of methods to crack the Windows 7 activation key.
Microsoft has said that it was aware about the hackers and is trying to block them. A company spokesperson has also stated that company is already aware of all these things and is working to address it. There are a pair of utilities which are "RemoveWAT" and "Chew-WGA,". These utilities can remove the activation technology in the operating system.
With the launch of Windows 7, Microsoft has changed its integrated antipiracy software name from "Windows Genuine Advantage" to "Windows Activation Technologies" (WAT). The most intelligible change to Windows 7 is the get rid of a slow log-in on a system with an inactivated copy of Windows. In Windows Vista, to proceed to the desktop, users had to wait 15 seconds before clicking the "Activate Later" button. But users can click that button immediately in Windows 7.
Microsoft made contingent changes to Vista's inappropriate software warnings nearly two years ago and then followed with the same changes to the older Windows XP. In both operating systems, the company has dropped the reduced functionality mode that necessarily made the system unfit for use.
Microsoft has also blocked anti-activation hacks previously by the use of Windows Update to push modifying to users. For example in early 2008, the company blocked two activation codes by releasing an update and after a month it released the crack detection code into Vista Service Pack 1. Another update was released in early 2009 to stymy another crack which affected Vista Ultimate a lot.
It was written in this article that Microsoft block Windows 7 cracks for its safety. It is sure that Microsoft will detect and nullify the Windows 7 cracks, especially in the next WGA update or Windows 7 Service Pack 1 as the cracks are based on removal of activation component which includes patching and modification to many system files.
