Earlier last month, Microsoft made announcements of the possible availability of this service pack but did not release any date for this. The Service Pack 1 for Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2 is available now.

Microsoft’s say on this SP1 release was,

Windows 7, SP1 includes only minor updates, among which are previous updates that are already delivered through Windows Update.

Chris123NT from  GeekSmack has posted screenshots of the leaked build on his website. The leaked build goes by the name of 6.1.7601.16537.amd64fre.win7.100327-0053 and will soon spread over various torrents.

There are two things you should worry about before trying this out.  Firstly, it can be malicious. Secondly, it is a leaked build and is not necessarily a beta release.

Microsoft has not released any official comment on this leak.
