Yeah, I can hack most OS's just as fast without a file... Just grab the hard drive, WTF now!! w00t... If I remember correctly from reading about this it had to do with loading stuff into the memory while Windows was starting... Which require you to modify the boot, which would require you to actually be at the computer, which means I might as well jack the hard drive...

Ha! Nice tags.

BTW, I am a pro at the pull-the-hard-drive hack. If anyone needs a how-to, PM me. J/K don't PM me. EVER.

I far as i know about it home user dont have to worry because it cannot exploited remotely. The tool kit can hack windows by changing data(any kind of) in the memory during boot time thus gaining access.


And office users you dont have worry also keep your computer in a safe.

Exactly...this exploit requires the hacker to be physically at the console to do this, so unless folks welcome malicious hackers over for beer & cookies allot, this is a non-issue
