Windows 7 Ultimate: Already Cracked

Although I will have a legit copy of Windows 7 Enterprise, (my college’s MSDN all the way) it seems as though the crackers of the internet have already busted open Windows 7 Ultimate and activated it with an OEM key. According to MyDigitalLife, the crack allows for a Windows 7 installation that is “permanently activated with OEM style instant offline activation which will pass Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) validation.” Again, MyDigitalLife describes the process: “all hell breaks loose when a Windows 7 Ultimate OEM DVD ISO from Lenovo been leaked and posted on a Chinese forum. The ISO was quickly grabbed to retrieve boot.wim, which was then used to retrieve the OEM-SLP product key and OEM certificate for Windows 7 Ultimate.”

MyDigitalLife also states this:

Both 32-bit and 64-bit (x86 and x64) Windows 7 Ultimate system should and can be activated immediately. For Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Home Basic, and Windows 7 Starter, the OEM-SLP keys haven’t been leaked, thus can’t be OEM-activated yet. It’s expected that various Windows 7 activators, Windows 7 activation toolkits, Windows 7 Loaders and etc are expected to be released by various hackers soon.

It has been confirmed that Windows 7 uses the same OEM certificate as Windows Vista (fail). The important thing is that the BIOS is modified to include SLIC 2.1 (a similar tactic was also used in the original crack for Windows Vista). The crack is OEM exclusive (will work on any brand, even though it was ripped from a leaked Lenovo DVD)

Although Windows7News does not endorse/support/advise piracy in any form whatsoever (and ask you to support Microsoft by buying their products), it’s interesting to see that hackers have already broken the operating system before it’s even released.

    Hahaha, that is funny! Windows 7 is not near market yet, just RTMed and already cracked! The crack is on torrent and shows up on my torrent search engine. I ma not going to explain how bad it is to use cracked software but if you do use it, verify ur ISO 😉

    This was to be expected; since win7 uses the same SLP-activation system as windows vista, all you need is to update the SLIC in your bios and get a certificate.

    What’s surprising is that the iso/key/cert combination was leaked SO early, way before the manufacturers themselves even should have the iso… This suggests a microsoft internal leak? Theres no other way this couldve been leaked this early, I had expected this kinda crack to be available around the 15th to 20th of August.

    Makes me wonder if its maybe a microsoft ploy to determine how many people are willing to reflash their bios to pirate their OS? If thats the case, releasing it so early will probably skew the results – even peolpe who have preordered may be tempted t activate like this until the preorders start shipping.
