Let the Games Begin

“Let the games begin,” the man says.

The privacy act over piracy computer software by Microsoft has barely started as a Researcher, Debasis Mohanty says he has a “workaround” that will enable pirated versions to work.

The gloves are off and the battles begin to heat up as this issue is certainly far from over.

According to news.com “Using a secondary Microsoft validation tool called “GenuineCheck.exe,” it may be possible for people to trick the checking mechanism”, as stated by Mohanty himself.

Microsoft has confirmed this could work but states they are “not worried.”

Time will only tell, but it will be an interesting battle to watch.
