+ - Is MS using covert tactics in the war on piracy?

Submitted by Detective
Detective (920359) writes "This is an unknown KB-929547 Hotfix for Vista, I started seeing posts about this on Zone Alarm forums, I searched Google, not much turned up, so I searched Microsoft, nothing at all on this KB. Here is what I have learned, this KB appears to be included in the Zone Alarm Installer for Vista, not sure what version 7.xxx, It appears to install at the same time ZA does, it appears to be a counter measure for cracked versions of Vista, renders the activation crack used by pirates inoperative. So is this true?, and is Microsoft using covert tactics to thwart piracy? I will let Slashdotter's get to the bottom of this story. My homework so far. http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/board/message?b oard.id=inst&message.id=69556 http://keznews.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9313"

Parts that positively cannot be assembled in improper order will be.
