Last night I made a comment that Vista has been leaked and it appears that it is true. Since then I have received a flood of emails linking to torrents and others that all link to what is referred to as the “Bill Gates” version of Vista. I’m not gonna post any torrent links because Microsoft doesn’t look kindly on that but it’s out there and you don’t have to look very hard.
At the time I didn’t feel it was necessary to make a post about Vista being leaked but now I have also received a flood of emails saying that Vista is already cracked. It looks like that is also true and the instructions can be found on the torrent networks. They require you to perform a few different steps so it isn’t as easy as a download-and-run crack but it should only take a few minutes of your time.
There has also been a lot of talk about Office 2007 being leaked as well but I haven’t taken the time to scope that out yet. I’m still in awe that, if the crack actually works in Vista, it only took someone less than 24-hours from it being leaked to break it! I think Microsoft needs to get some hardcore hackers on their security team because it should definitely take longer than a day.
Thanks to everyone who sent me an email on this!
Please don’t post any RapidShare/Torrent links in the comments because I’ll have to remove them. :|
