Well Microsoft decleared war on the warez versions of the operating system Windows XP as you can read in this article.
There main target probely will be the key of the widely used DevilsOwn warez version starting with : FCKGW
The beta of Service Pack 1 for Windows XP has now shipped to testers and, as previously advertised, it declines to install if you're using a leaked WinXP licence key. But - again as previously advertised - it doesn't deactivate your installation, just stops you applying the service pack.
So far, people using copies of Windows XP that have been activated using one of the leaked keys have had no trouble getting patches and updates because Windows Update didn't check the validity of their licence. But as Microsoft is clearly stating that licence information is now being gathered by Windows Update, and that a "validly licensed copy of Windows ensures that you will receive on-going updates," then it seems pretty logical to presume that an invalidly licensed copy of Windows ensures that you won't.
As far as Windows Update is concerned, it also still seems possible to use the corporate version of Windows Update to download your selected patches and updates without having your ID checked. At the moment corporate Windows Update is also claiming it checks your OS and product identification number, but as it's still perfectly feasible to download a WinXP critical update with a Win2k machine (we just did), it's not entirely clear to us where that gets Microsoft. It may be the case that the site collects licensing information if you're running XP and declines to serve you if it's a dodgy copy. But as the message is on the corporate site, again we have a clear statement of intent.
I think there will be out a cracked SP1 out soon after Microsoft released.
Its like with all things a matter of time..
