Microsoft is doing much more than simply fighting pirated versions of Windows with Service Pack upgrades and crack killer updates. According to details offered by the software giant itself, new anti-hacking technologies are cooking for Windows. A job post for the position of Senior Development Engineer – Windows
mentions that the Redmond company is getting ready to up the ante on bootleggers, hackers and crackers (via MSFTKitchen
). Of course, actual details are extremely scarce, and the listing doesn’t even mention the platform that will benefit from the integration of new anti-piracy technologies, or if there’s a possibility that they will be included in Windows 8, for example.
