Submission + - How to Crack Microsoft Windows Vista in 1 Minute

HuckleCom writes: An article on F-Secure offers insight to a new vital issue with Vista security. It seems as though physical security doesn't matter anymore.

From TFA:
"Did you know that the Command Prompt tool found in Vista's System Recovery Options doesn't require a User Name or Password? And that the Command Prompt provides Administrator level access to the hard drive? For multiple versions of Windows? All you need is a Vista Install DVD and you're all set to go.",

F-Secure provides a link to detailed instructions that demonstrates how vital of an issue this really is.

If A = B and B = C, then A = C, except where void or prohibited by law. -- Roy Santoro
