Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Activation Technologies Already Cracked
By on August 1st, 2010

Windows-7 You have probably heard by now that Windows 7 Service Pack 1 includes the anti-piracy update (KB971033) that was released earlier this year. However, it appears that Windows 7 is still as crackable as before.

The original WAT update killed more than 70 cracks available for Microsoft’s newest desktop operating system and promised to kill any new cracks that cropped up through signature updates. Although Microsoft succeeded in nixing several loaders that misused OEM SLP keys, many others managed to find a work around.

The Windows 7 SP1 beta has just been released, and crackers have already updated their loaders to bypass the new security measures. In the perennial cat and mouse game between Microsoft and the crackers, crackers have once again outsmarted Microsoft. However, the first service pack for Windows 7 is scheduled for the first half of next year. The Redmond based PC giant still has plenty of time to update the WAT tool’s signature and bounce back.
