The Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) is the anti-piracy mechanism from Microsoft for Windows operating system such as Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. WGA Validation Tool helps user to determine whether or not the copy of Windows is genuine, while WGA Notifications responsible for prompting warning message to end-user once the system is validated as non-genuine.Windows Genuine Advantage Validation has been updated to version 220.127.116.11 in February 2010. WGA Validation ActiveX component will be downloaded and installed whenever end-user tries to run Windows Update manually, or when download WGA-protected files from Microsoft Download Center.
For users whose system are wrongly accused by WGA validation as non-genuine, and has no avenue to fix the issue, there is crack to hack to WGA validation so that it will report genuine status. Note that the crack is not an activation crack for Windows, not for Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7, nor the crack can make Windows genuine.
hi comradei have a cracked windows "XP sp3" and when i updated it , my desktop gone Black with this image: i can log in on my windows but i lost my DESKTOP dunno for what,please help me that how can i fix it without re installation!
If you download the Genuine Validation Tool, it will tell you if the PRODUCT KEY is genuine, or is being a cracked version. However it will not check Whether windows 7 was installed using some tampered ISO !
Microsoft has pushed and rolled out the new version of Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool v18.104.22.168 since April 22, 2008 via Windows Update and Microsoft Download Center to those who wants to download non-critical and non-security related software. The current version 1.7.0069.2 of WGA Validation Tool was first released on March 18, 2008 to Windows Vista users, and on April 1, 2008 to Windows XP users who visit WGA website or Download Center, and perform validation test.WGA Validation Tool (KB892130) allows users to perform validation test or check legality of Windows XP or Vista installed on their system when required, such as when users want to download WGA-restricted or genuine Windows and genuine Office only software programs from Microsoft Download Center. Depending on validation method which user chose, there may be different files been installed on their system.
The effect of distributed coseismic slip on progressive, near-field edge waves is examined for continental shelf tsunamis. Detailed observations of edge waves are difficult to separate from the other tsunami phases that are observed on tide gauge records. In this study, analytic methods are used to compute tsunami edge waves distributed over a finite number of modes and for uniformly sloping bathymetry. Coseismic displacements from static elastic theory are introduced as initial conditions in calculating the evolution of progressive edge-waves. Both simple crack representations (constant stress drop) and stochastic slip models (heterogeneous stress drop) are tested on a fault with geometry similar to that of the M w = 8.8 2010 Chile earthquake. Crack-like ruptures that are beneath or that span the shoreline result in similar longshore patterns of maximum edge-wave amplitude. Ruptures located farther offshore result in reduced edge-wave excitation, consistent with previous studies. Introduction of stress-drop heterogeneity by way of stochastic slip models results in significantly more variability in longshore edge-wave patterns compared to crack-like ruptures for the same offshore source position. In some cases, regions of high slip that are spatially distinct will yield sub-events, in terms of tsunami generation. Constructive interference of both non-trapped and trapped waves can yield significantly larger tsunamis than those that produced by simple earthquake characterizations.
Abstract: Constructing trustworthy computer systems requires validating that every executed piece of code is genuine and that the programs do exactly what they are supposed to do. However, pre-execution code integrity validations can fail to detect runtime compromises, such as code injection, return and jump-oriented programming, and illegal linking of code to compromised library functions. In this dissertation, we propose and investigate three distinct mechanisms for authenticating code execution at run-time. The common goal of these techniques is to detect run-time compromises, irrespective ofthe specific type of attack that may have been carried out. Thus, these solutions are universal and are in sharp contrast to piecemeal solutions that have been proposed to detect specific types of attacks that compromise execution. 2b1af7f3a8
