Microsoft “Genuine Advantage” cracked in 24h!

1:14 | Computers | Windows | OS | IE

This is friggin’ hilarious… Barely a single day goes by after reporting Microsoft enforces “Windows Genuine Advantage” to crack down on illegal copies of its software - And the thing was cracked!
In less than 24 hours..! And the crack is so simple..!!!

Ladies and gents, when you’re online and you want to download an update, before pressing ‘Custom’ or ‘Express’ buttons paste this text to the address bar and press enter:
javascript:void(window.g_sDisableWGACheck=’all’)

This turns off the trigger for the key check.

You have to wonder how long MS will leave that JavaScript in there.

I bet it’ll be gone by the end of the week, if not by the end of the day.
