POSTED BY Patrick ON August 4, 2009 / 1 COMMENTS

Lenovo issued a statement to The Inquirer after Windows 7 Ultimate was cracked last week. An edited email says: “An ISO image (loaded on a Lenovo system) containing the Windows 7 RTM (release to manufacturing), OEM key and marker file, was stolen and placed on a hacker forum in China. The pirated OEM key is being disabled and Lenovo strongly advises customers not to download Windows 7 from unauthorised sources. Lenovo will provide a free license upgrade to Windows 7 for customers who purchase a Lenovo laptop or desktop PC with an eligible Windows Vista version between 31 January 2010 and 26 June 2009.”
