    Wink Windows Genuine Advantage Cracked

    Microsoft "Genuine Advantage" cracked in 24h: window.g_sDisableWGACheck='all'
    AV sez, "This week, Microsoft started requiring users to verifiy their serial number before using Windows Update. This effort to force users to either buy XP or tell them where you got the illegal copy is called 'Genuine Advantage.' It was cracked within 24 hours."
    Before pressing 'Custom' or 'Express' buttons paste this text to the address bar and press enter:
    [Content removed by Tokar - goto the first link for the code]

    It turns off the trigger for the key check.

    Seems some shrewd thinkers went to work on how to solve the WGA issues they'd been having since Microsoft turned it on a couple of days ago.

    a new way...

    And yet another new way below:

    Hot on the heals of Microsoft patching the Windows Genuine Advantage program against malicious scripts and hidden checkboxes, an interesting new workaround has been discovered. It seems that running GenuineCheck.exe in Windows 2000 compatibility mode generates a valid authorization key for all systems running versions of Windows XP.

    As per usual, the workaround has been posted on most of the commercial news sites like CNet, leading us to believe that Microsoft will want to patch it up quickly. The program has been the object of much criticism since it became a mandatory step in automatically updating Windows machines a few weeks ago.

    WOW... WGA is not so genuine after all.
