While Microsoft is betting really big on Windows 8 platform, it now seems like hacker community is finding new ways to pitch in and crack the OS and its apps. In the recent days we have heard about the news that Microsoft has accidentally gifted the key to Windows 8 OS activation in the form of KMS to the hacker community unknowingly and in the fresh news hackers have managed to crack the Paid trial version of Windows 8 Metro Apps which now is a new challenge for Microsoft to fix it.
Hackers from MDL Forums have now come up with a tool which converts the trail apps downloaded from the Windows 8 Store to the ones which are purchased. If you are surprised like I was initially on how this is possible then I would like to tell you that in Windows Store of Windows 8, for every PAID application listed has an option for trial for 7 days so that you can experience the app for 7 days for FREE and then one can take a call on whether to purchase the same or not, but hackers have upped their ante on cracking the mechanism to get free paid apps.
