Vista 32-bit activation BIOS crack hits the street

You can coat anything in a rich creamy layer of activation security but the software cracking scene will still find a creative way around it. A post on Digg points to a brand spankin' new Vista activation crack which promises to be a big pain for Microsoft.

According to the FILENetworks Blog, this Vista activation crack represents a giant leap forward from previous Vista activation "workarounds". Using an installable software driver, the Vista BIOS emulation crack fools Vista into the belief that it is running on top of an approved vendor's BIOS, apparently opening up validation free licensing similar to what an OEM would receive.

We at Download Squad obviously don't support the distribution of pirated software but, we do marvel at the lengths some bedroom software crackers will go to have the latest and greatest scot free.
