    Very interesting how that works. I wonder how many of those will actually work.

    Yeah, talk about a security breach. Login names, network info, etc.

    But the best part was all those free Photoshop CS keys...

    :)

    PS Security might be a better location for this thread.

    This is the reason M$ wanted to buy google. I think it's funny to tell the truth. It shows how insecure sites really are.

    well there is anouther way a user can screw them selves over with a great app. its so easy to get keys from best buy or futureshop this way but i never thought people post there own keys on the net.

    gotta love the people for this one.

    As far as XP....

    Wouldn't the hardware be so different that activation would fail so you would have to call Microsoft?

    Something that someone with a stolen key is not likely to do.

    All you would really need is the M8J3M-QRKTX-HT48F-R8CDV-XXXX key to make this work, and the liceanse it over the phone with a new subscription.

    Contrary to popular belief also MS collects info on user, location and key when you submit a error if it pertains to IE. It is the same one used by XP or any OS. IE key = to OS key.
