+ - Vista activation circumvented with BIOS emulation

Submitted by
Steve Kerrison
Steve Kerrison writes "If a brute force Vista product key-gen won't work, then a tool to exploit the volume licensing used by OEMs might. HEXUS.net reports that a toolkit has been produced that emulates an OEM BIOS to make the system appear as a pre-activated machine. Combined with the correct certificate and OEM key, Vista won't perform any further activation."

fortune: cpu time/usefulness ratio too high -- core dumped.

Working...
