    Vista gets owned by Iranians

    All the effort Microsoft has put into making sure this Windows would be the most secure ever appears to be somewhat in vain. Iranian hackers, operating through a legitimate software firm, have gotten past all of Microsoft's "anti-copying tricks". These hackers claim they will sell these illegitimate copies of Windows Vista through the firm they work for at approximately $8 USD a copy. What's really interesting, though, is how they managed to give each pirated copy of Vista its own serial number, so that they can register it through Microsoft as a legal copy of Windows Vista

    Nice job people - that surely must be a new record for software hackage.

    I kind of expected something like this to happen. I mean, such a massive, dominating company in the world of technology calls it's new program "as secure as all hell".......what did we expect, all the "pro hackers" to sit back and take their time? Especially if they are getting paid to do this, they are going to jump at it. They are being paid to accomplish what is probably a part of every anti-Microsoft hacker's dream! They aren't going to wait for another team to crack it first, they are going to work day and night using everything from previous knowledge to social engineering 24/7.

    It would probably change your BIOS settings so when you restart your CPU becomes a nuclear reactor.

    For my casual computer use, my G4's been the best any computer has ever been to me. I'm sticking with it regardless of how cheap any pirated copies of a blue screen ridden program are developed.
