‘Genuine Windows’ on Ubuntu

Topics

Mig5, a user at UbuntuForums.org managed to validate an Ubuntu installation as a genuine copy of Microsoft Windows and get to the download page of Windows Defender, using IE4Linux and Wine. As IE4Linux doesn’t support ActiveX, he downloaded the validation tool and ran it using Wine. The validation tool generated the code. Surprisingly, it verified Ubuntu as ‘Genuine Windows’ and forwarded him to the Defender download page. This means a validation bypass for the WGA validation. I bet MS would fix this in a matter of days.
