Trojans likely to follow Win 7 activation hack

Trojan attacks are likely in the wake of the Windows 7 product activation system cracks developed last week, less than a month after the release of Microsoft's latest operating system. The RemoveWAT (and the similar ChewWGA) utility allow a prospective Windows 7 user to bypass the Windows Genuine Advantage registration procedure. Both hacks circumvent product activation without the need to have OEM keys, unlike earlier hacks on pre-release code. Security firm

Sunbelt Software warns that Trojans posing as Win 7 cracks are very likely to follow. "RemoveWAT and Chew-WGA... join the grimy world of cracks and key-gens oft-Trojanised applications that defeat activation passwords or other security on legitimate software," writes Sunbelt researcher Tom Kelchner.
