In its crusade against users owning pirated copies of Windows who are downloading updates offered by Windows

Update, Microsoft activated this week Windows Genuine Advantage 1.0.

The program offers access to programs like Windows Media Player, DirectX and Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware only to those users who own a genuine copy of Windows.

Unfortunately for the Redmond company, a hackers has already found a way to bypass the authenticating process from Windows Genuine Advantage. It only takes a few JavaScript code lines in the browser, and the road to Windows Update is clear.

Hackers posted versions of this crack for both IE and Firefox, and there is also a thread on Slashdot where several users say they have succeeded to trick Windows Genuine Advantage.

Microsoft is already looking into the problem and company officials said that a patch for this problem will be issued soon.

In response, the hacker said on his Web page that he will also improve the crack.

There will always be mirrors, too, Microsoft's not the only place where you can get your updates / betas.

Btw, Oh yeah, this is a crusade. Sheesh!

Come on, you dont really believe that Microsoft missed this? If mistakes like that were made where would we be today. They're just making some pressure on people to go legit, but they wont risk loosing windows users. Most people in most countries would switch to Linux rather than purchase windows if that was a must.

I can't recall the exact figures for the UK but it had one of the lowest piracy rates in the world, even lower than the US I think...

for all the beginner crackers:

why not trying to crack the LegitCheckControl.dll yourself? it isn't packed, it isn't protected... shouldn't be very hard also for beginners.

I don't know what all the fuss is about. I just went on Windows Updates and it didn't ask me for a thing. Does this only concern those people who are using pirated Windows with a known pirated serial?

Hi Ted. Some versions pass the check. I have 2 PCs and the one passed it without any problem. Most possibly because it is corp edition.
