In a customer support situation, a Microsoft engineer ran a “crack” of Windows on a customer’s computer after being unable to activate the license according to the official instructions.
It appears that this is not the first time that Microsoft support specialists have used such workarounds when under time pressure to provide timely support to customers.
Microsoft employees use “jailbreak” goods to activate Windows copyrights
A South African resident bought a Windows license for $200 but couldn’t activate the license in the usual way. He sent a support request to Microsoft, a Microsoft engineer in charge of this customer also performed a way to activate the license but still failed.

In contrast, if the software is “jailbroken” and the keys are shared online, it is prohibited according to Microsoft’s regulations. But the company does not currently have a mechanism to prevent this.

Dangers of using warez and crack software

He also said that his Windows/Office crack product is unofficial and completely illegal. It is unbelievable that customers buy a license key to ensure the safety of Windows, but are supported by Microsoft by using 3rd party crack software.
