When Microsoft started giving away free license keys of Windows 8 Pro Media Center, software pirates found a way to activate an illegitimate Windows 8 copy. Using the Windows 8 activation workaround, software pirates converted their illegitimate copy to a legitimate licensed copy of Windows 8 at no cost. All by simply using the Windows Media Center upgrade key provided by Microsoft for free as part of a limited time offer.
It was expected that sooner or later the Redmond-based software giant will patch the activation exploit. Neowin.net now reports that Microsoft has quietly patched the Windows 8 activation bug. Now, if any user tries to use the activation exploit, they are provided with a traditional “Activation error” message.
