Microsoft Sneaks in Vista Anti-Hack Update Under Radar

Microsoft's Windows Vista Service Pack 1 brought to an end two anti-activation exploits; the Grace Timer exploit and the Paradox OEM BIOS activation crack. Gamers thinking they've avoided the anti-hack update by turning down the sp1, may already have it installed.

You cant really blame Microsoft for trying to do this secretly. Although, it will just be a matter of time before hackers find a way around this.

Or would at least turn Auto Updates off. :|


Actually, Vista's great. Just turn off the updates. OS updates are useless anyway. They just take-up space and annoy you.

Heh, I stick to XP like flies on $hit and will NEVER go to Vista no matter how much M$ pushes it. Of course, I download updates, but not automatically. Windows notifies me of updates, then I look at them one by one to see what will be downloaded. Be smart people: Don't let Windows, whatever version you use, do whatever it wants.
