* MS expands piracy checking

Microsoft's made it yet a bit harder for users with pirated copies of Windows to get updates... they've expanded the piracy checker.

Over the coming months, Microsoft will require users who want to download the add-ons to first authenticate their copy of Windows, blocking access for users of pirated Windows copies, the company said in a statement. The first add-on to be affected will be the Vietnamese language interface pack, which was made available on Wednesday and requires validation to download.
Windows Genuine Disaster program strikes again... I know they think it's "protecting their business", but watch as viruses start flying at a faster rate when they know they can infect unpatched machines.
