Ubuntu Linux Validates As Genuine Windows

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hehehe... Go microshaft!!!!

I just did this for a laugh and didn't expect it to work. I went to microsoft.com using IE4Linux ( http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page ) and tried to download Windows Defender, on Xubuntu. Of course, I was asked to do the Genuine Advantage test. I used the alternate authentication method (IE4Linux doesn't support Active X), downloaded and then ran the genuine advantage application (which took quite a while to start). It gave me a code that I pasted into the authentication box, and to my surprise it verified me and forwarded me to the download page. This just goes to show how rubbish they're validation software is. I thought it was funny though, so I've uploaded a recording of it to rapid share, which you can get here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/37580147/recording.ogg
(the file is about 10MB, so it might take a while to get)
Admin, I didn't link to anything illegal, just to the site that this guy tells how he did it... I don't even think there is anything wrong with this other than Ubuntu some how gets authenticated as windows by Microsoft servers... nothing else involved....

Microsoft will find this interesting, assuming they notice.

Theres nothing illegal about posting the failures of others. Why do you think Bush can't stop broadcasting networks from airing his state of the unions.

All in all the point of validation is not that people be secure; simply that they feel secure. Ten internets says that Microfail will have patched this workaround, mind you, ONLY this workaround. Not only that, they will give a press release saying that linux users cracked the workaround, demonize them as hackers, pirates or freeloaders and proclaim victory in thwarting their malicious validation evasions. Vista users will be told they are ever more secure and XP/2000/2005 users will be told to get out of the stone age and join the civilized world.

In the end big brother will declare victory and the humor we see in laughing at microsucks validation façade will fade as england prevails.

For more insight into the theory behind what M$ is doing, read up on Panopticism. You never know what you may find, or what may find you.

On a serious note, most of that (and this) post are satire, simple jokes meant to deliver a chuckle to those who would understand. I dont mean to offend, I simply am excited about M$'s glaring inconsistency, I thought you might be too. Also I wanted to see if I could fit three obscure references into one sentence. Too obscure though. Didn't work.

Take a minute to read some Foucault though, he will change your life.

If you dont believe me, I used to be a woman. Now what.
