See Even Microsoft Uses Pirated Software
« on: November 23, 2004, 11:41:47 AM »
Members of a former software-cracking group exposed that Microsoft have used illegally reverse engineered to create some of the content of Windows XP. The files in question are 9 .wav sound files.

The files are located in the "WINDOWS\Help\Tours\WindowsMediaPlayer\Audio\Wav" directory of Windows XP. If these files are opened with a HEX editor the code contains the signature "Deepz0ne", who was a member of former cracking group "Radium"    

The signature has been positively identified as "authentic for the cracked version of Sound Forge 4.5".
This all means that there are grounds for a massive copyright-infringement lawsuit for Microsoft.

MS denied that they had used cracked software, and explained it with "It wasn't intented to be released, that was a mistake".

Much like the good old: "I only grew the weed at home for testing purposes, it was supposed to be destroyed afterwards".  ::)
