That was quick: Windows 8 Store app protection already hacked, turns the trials permanent

The Wsservice_crk hack turns the trial version, which all apps are obliged to offer, into a full-fledged cracked app that can stay on your computer indefinitely, which is certain to raise some eyebrows for devs. The crack also offers some additional features like packaging apps for sideloading, without Redmond signing off on them...

Are you saying he's wrong? In all fairness, he isn't. Not saying Windows is invulernable (and I know of no system that is), but his statements aren't incorrect.

I don't know why this is such a surprise. Hackers have been circumventing ms products for years. I suspect w8 are no different.

Thats messed up, thats actually a good feature of windows 8. You get to try an app before you buy it; I wish android had this feature, then I would probably buy more apps.
