Crackers Defeat Vista Activation Stephen Fung March 3, 2007 It was only a matter of time till Microsoft’s great Anti-Piracy and Software Activation was cracked by an elite group of crackers. How’d they do it? “It is based on the ACPI_SLIC table in the motherboard BIOS. This allows OEM licenses to work using SLP 2.0 (system locked pre-installation). The previous crack involved modifying the motherboard’s BIOS, which would be considered very risky. This time they actually managed to emulate the SLIC table in two ways.” OK, didn’t really need to know all that, but the reports are that it works. Uncle Bill must not be sleeping well right now.
