I've spent the last few weeks hiding in the Tora Bora cave complex in Afghanistan and the wireless data services are flakey to say the least so I'm a little behind on this thread
I dont believe anyone at Redmond wants to pay for my help, give me a prize, a free buffet or even a big hug.
I don't see much point in M$ suing me either since I dont have millions of dollars (not unless it slipped down the back of the sofa but I think I would have noticed). If I end up in a criminal court I am 100% certain I will take the opportunity to spell out exactly how poor that security system is which can only lead to more embaressment IMHO. Maybe I could use the opportunity to discuss byte by byte how the hack works in open court and on the record if you know what I mean
What could M$ possibly learn from reading the thread? They know how their security system works and must know how trivial it is to defeat. I don't think they get much from reading this thread, the only motivation, IMHO, would be to monitor the site for copyright infringements and links to hacked firmware and I'm guessing they would be in touch if such were posted.
Finally are there any European Legal Beagles reading this, it may come as a suprise to some but we're not all US citizens and fascinating though your legal system & constitution may be it doesn't appear to apply to the whole world.
Ok, gotta go, Mohammed is back & I have to go haggle over the price of Opium. I decided to abondon hacking and get into international drug smuggling - it's safer and pays better
