Hackers rumoured to have cracked Windows 7 activation
Microsoft only just released final code for Windows 7 to manufacturers and the company is already facing a security risk.
The Windows Genuine Advantage antipiracy system in the Windows 7 Ultimate release to manufacturers (RTM) has reportedly been compromised by some Chinese hackers, according to a variety of Chinese forums, and first reported by Neowin.com. This means the user can fully activate the software offline without connecting to Microsoft's activation server.

Not really news as such... this has happened with every release of XP, Vista and MS Office.

I'd have been more surprised if Windows 7 wasn't full of holes and bugs.
