Failure to activate Windows 8 Microsoft illegally

Failure to activate Windows 8 Microsoft illegally

Let’s face it: a large number of Windows users do not have an original license its operating system, but use any activation method that allows them to have it for free. All versions of Windows are susceptible to this kind of tricks, so it was a matter of time before the newly released was also a victim of that.

Because as has been reported in different social networks and websites, hackers are taking advantage of a vulnerability left by that opens the door to an illegitimate activation, all installations of Windows 8 that have been previously modified an old method to validate the platform, which uses a process called (Key Management System).

Now, those who have done the first one can ask for a “key” or password to add free Microsoft to this installation of Windows, which is delivered via email and have the grace that when installed, accepts the as valid for the system and authenticates it definitely.

The delivery of these keys from Microsoft ends on January 31, 2013, but the intention was not to serve to activate Windows, but only to download Windows Media Center, probably no longer deliver in no time, if do not go with a method that solves the problem completely.
