Microsoft "Genuine Advantage" cracked in 24h

By Dave

Well, there were many people that were very upset about Microsoft peaking into their system to see if they had a valid copy of Windows XP, but it looks like some wonderful javascript will save the day.

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:

javascript:void(window.g_sDisableWGACheck=’all’)

It turns off the trigger for the key check.
