Trust Brian Krebs to have the full scoop on the Windows Genuine Advantage notificaiton tool. I talked about this in the news section of the last show. I wished he had written this article last week, as there is a lot more detailed information than the article I found.
You might think this would lay the whole issue to rest, but you’d be wrong. Some notable technology bloggers have posited that Microsoft is preparing to push out a digital “kill switch” that could work with WGA to remotely disable machines found to be running pirated copies of Windows.
I feared as much, nice to know I wasn’t the only one.
