SOFTWARE GIANT MICROSOFT is updating Windows XP anti-piracy technology to detect illegal copies installed with stolen or faked product keys, or with new activation cracks.
Writing in his bog, director of Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage program Alex Kochis has announced a range of changes to WGA.
The update includes the latest validation information, including recently stolen or misused product keys and other information as well as a method of disabling popular cracks.
Windows XP Professional is the operating system of choice for pirates who don't like Vista much either. µ
