"The pirated copy of Vista does not require a serial number, is already activated, and updates itself from Microsoft[.]"
SoftPedia is reporting that a group called "NoPE" has cracked (yet again) Microsoft's latest operating system--Windows Vista. This time the 'crack' is "out of the box" since all the user must do is just install the OS like normal. One of the key breakthroughs, I guess you could say, is that the OS is "detected as genuine by Microsoft's WGA..." thus enabling automatic updates. The information was originally posted on ActiveWin.
It's inconceivable, if you ask me.
