Seems to be truth, I found this package on one russian torrent tracker. Folks there say it works.

This doesn’t prove that the OS is insecure, only that hackers have already broken the activation scheme.

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:
