However, just as it happened with Windows Vista, there's already been a Windows 7 crack created utilizing a major OEM's volume license pre-activation key. Instead of Dell, this time the key in question belongs to Lenovo. The key and OEM certificate were simply extracted from the Windows 7 Ultimate .wim files.

The thing is, its only because the stupid OEM partners. They need to rework how its done with OEM Partners.

What I find bad is that like the vista crack it most likely will have issues with specific hardware which people will blame on the OS insted of the crack, giving Windows 7 a bad rep.

Uhm, not cracked. LEAKED. By none other than Lenovo! (Chinese company)

While software leaks are inevitable, Windows 7 has been particularly leaky during the course of its development. Hot on the heels of the leaks of near-RTM builds onto the internet, a new Windows 7 package has leaked -- an active copy of Ultimate edition.

The new version comes courtesy of what appears to be a legitimate Lenovo OEM Ultimate edition DVD .ISO file, first posted on a Chinese web forum. The boot.wim file was cracked to yield the OEM-SLP key and the OEM activation certificate.

The data obtained turned out to be pure paydirt. The key is the master OEM key, capable of activating OEM builds deliver to (and subsequently leaked from) any of the major OEMs -- Dell, HP, Acer, or Lenovo. Further it reveals that Windows 7's OEM digital signing system uses the .xrm-ms extension, just like Windows Vista.

While leaks of Windows 7 are nothing new, this leak presents a particularly dangerous threat to Microsoft. The company is left with only a few options -- changing the master OEM key, adding a second activation key for future builds, or changing its signing system. Any of the possibilities will potentially throw OEMs off course, so Microsoft may opt to take no action at all

Is this really a crack?

They make it sound like someone circumvented the authentication without the use of a pre-existing key or something. Meh, it's just piracy with some extra gimmicks.

FU Lenovo. You don't have to prove that the Chinese no.1 hobby is piracy.
