It seems that hackers have figured out how to resurrect news about a Vista activation hack that's over a year old.

Yesterday I received several emails from readers pointing to a post on Slashdot.  The site was running a piece which pointed to a an article on APC Magazine from the 4th March 2007 which was reprting on an activation hack released by the Pantheon group.  I didn't think anything of it, after all, accidents happen.

By today, this story is has spread to other sites.  I tell you, it must be hacker ...oops there goes another ...

Be careful, hackers could have infiltrated your favourite source of IT-related information and be feeding you year-old information.  Rest assured that Hardware 2.0 will continue to serve you fresh news!

Oh, and do keep those tip-offs coming in ... I do appreciate them, even if they are a year old! ;-)
