AFAIK it’s not a system breach in classical meaning. No intrusion in system needed, no components are going to be changed/replaced after activation. It’s the implementation of KMS server.

the local KMS server works just fine I just can’t understand why anyone would want to bother for an upgrade of 39.95 to windows 8 pro.:eek:
