No plans to deal with the threat


Microsoft has confirmed that Vista's Genuine Advantage system has been hacked enabling the operating system to be pirated. However Redmond says that it has no plans to do anything about it yet as the hacks do not pose a threat to customers.

He did not confirm which hacks they were, however last month a crack called "Vista Loader 2.0," an enhanced version of the "Vista Loader 1.0" that was devised by Chinese hackers. This simulates an OEM motherboard's basic input-output system and the registration process that would normally lock out an unauthorised copy is bypassed.
