VPN bypass vulnerability affects Android Jelly Bean and KitKat

Quote:
A vulnerability in Android allows malicious applications to bypass an active VPN (virtual private network) connection and force traffic from the device through an attacker-controlled system where it can be intercepted, according to security researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel.

Researchers from the university's Cyber Security Labs initially reported Jan. 17 that the vulnerability affects Android 4.3, known as Jelly Bean. However, upon further investigation they were also able to reproduce it on Android 4.4 KitKat, the latest major version of the mobile OS.

Installing Win7HP 64bit, instead of 32bit, used Magic Jelly Bean
Hi, I used Magic Jelly Bean to extract the serial number from the installed Windows 7 32bit Home Premium. My question, now that I downloaded http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.iso for Windows 7 64bit Home Premium, will that serial work for it from the 32 bit Home Premium?
