Windows Vista News of the Day

Quite a bit of Windows Vista news today, to start off, Microsoft is giving Windows Vista users 90 days of free wi-fi from T-Mobile. Anyone with Windows Vista installed will be able to access any of T-Mobile’s 8,234 wi-fi locations for free, and users who already have Vista installed should be able to use it starting around January 26th.

As part of its promotional efforts surrounding the launch of Windows Vista, Microsoft said Wednesday that for 90 days after the debut of the next-generation operating system, customers would be able to use T-Mobile Hotspot Wi-Fi for free on laptops running Vista. Those with advance copies of the operating system would be able to take advantage of the program beginning January 26, Microsoft said.

The service would be available at any of T-Mobile’s 8,234 locations across the United States, including Starbucks, Borders bookstores, FedEx Kinko’s location, select Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, airports, and the airline clubs of American, Delta, United and US Airways. The only requirement to access the service is a computer with Windows Vista installed. Source: Free T-Mobile Hotspot for Vista Users

Ars Technica has released OEM pricing information for Windows Vista, usually, it is discounted heavily, but only the business and ultimate editions are actually discounted this time around.

Vista Home Basic $99 (full version retail: $199)
Vista Home Premium: $119 (full version retail: $239)
Vista Business: $149 (full version retail: $299)
Vista Ultimate $199 (full version retail: $399)

It must be noted that the OEM license that comes with Vista is indeed similar to the Windows XP OEM license in that it forbids any kind of transfer between machines. We expect that DIYers won’t have problems swapping parts, but technically you won’t be able to move a license to a brand-new box in two years without falling out of compliance.

Another article today from Digital Chosunilbo, the English version, a Korean website, warns it’s readers to check with their favorite online sites, banking institutions and portals because Windows Vista does not like Active-X.

When Microsoft releases its next-generation Windows operating system in Korea next week, local Internet users will find that it doesn’t work with many of their favorite Web sites. A Hangul version of the new OS, called Vista, hits shelves Jan. 31, but the new OS is incompatible with many Korean online banks, portals, games sites and malls.

Three government bodies — the Ministry of Information and Communication, the Ministry of Government Administration and Home Affairs, and the Financial Supervisory Service — warned Tuesday about the expected confusion. The problem is that Vista doesn’t play well with a software program called Active-X that is widely used in Korean Internet sites. Without support for Active-X, online services that Koreans use everyday like banking, stock trading, and shopping won’t be available. Vista users will also experience problems with government sites in applying for and printing documents and certificates. Source: Microsoft Vista to Cause Confusion for Korean Net Users

While it is true that Windows Vista will have trouble with some of these websites, it is because of IE7 Active-X Opt-in which only allows controls you say can run or high-volume, trusted controls like Flash. I guess this was another reason not to use the highly insecure Active-X controls, as most Korean websites apparently do.

Windows XP vs Windows Vista Lab Tests

PCWorld did some testing and the end of the year, comparing Windows XP and Windows Vista running on the same machines, from an older Pentium 1.8Ghz notebook to a 2.4-GHz Core 2 Duo E6600 and Radeon X1600 graphics card. As always Microsoft has said Vista will run faster, but they have always said that in the past, and everytime, you usually had to have better hardware to run the same speed. Things to note, at the time of the testing, graphics card manufacturers were still testing and tweaking their drivers, so expect some improvement there, and they used an updated version of Photoshop for Windows Vista, so, it wasn’t exactly the same.

With Microsoft’s Windows Vista finally released to manufacturers and on the verge of making its way to retail, we can at last get down to the business of examining precisely how well the new OS performs. In our first tests, we discovered that while Vista’s hardware requirements may be steep, it should run just fine–even with the Aero bells and whistles active–on machines that meet Microsoft’s Premium Ready specifications (1GB of RAM, and a DirectX 9-capable graphics board with at least 128MB of dedicated memory).

  • Vista is generally slower than XP, but it’s better at multitasking on dual-core PCs.
  • Your PC should have 1GB of RAM at the bare minimum.
  • Aero won’t slow you down if you use a discrete graphics processor and enough memory.
  • Apps run slower on the 64-bit version of Vista, but adding RAM closes the gap.

Source: Lab Tests: Vista’s Fast If You Have the Hardware

Some of their conclusions say they did not see any improvements with Readyboost, the system actually slowed down some. The Dual Core machine had a big difference in the multitasking tests, Microsoft had already said there would be a difference because Vista was better at running multiple threads of code. The multitasking and gaming tests did not show much of an improvement in going from 1GB to 2GB of memory, but the comparisons to 512MB showed them to not go under 1GB of memory. The real difference will be whether you are using an integrated graphics card, a decent video card or a high end card, they concluded you should not run Aero if you are using an integrated card, while using a graphics card it did not affect the performance of the machine at all. So, PC’s from the past couple years should run it pretty good, but may need more memory if it is less than 1GB.

Security Vendors Get First Draft of PatchGuard APIs

Microsoft today released the first draft of their Patchguard APIs that will allow independent security vendors to get around the new kernel protection of Patchguard. They also released an evaluation document that details the processes Microsoft used in evaluating vendor requests for APIs to the Vista, and they are wanting feedback on the feedback criteria as well as the Patchguard API by the end of January 2007.

Today’s draft APIs are based on feedback from 26 security vendors and address four major areas, Fathi said. They include APIs for tamper protection, memory-based controls and image-loading operations. Together, the APIs address a majority of the issues raised by third-party security vendors in discussions over the past few months, Fathi said.

“Over the next few weeks, we will work with them to see if there are any changes that are needed,” he said. “Hopefully, everybody will agree this is the right set of APIs and this is what we will deliver in Vista SP1,” he said. Microsoft also plans to continue to work with vendors in gathering requirements from them and delivering new APIs as needed.

At the same time, however, Microsoft has not changed its position regarding third-party access to the Vista kernel, Fathi said. Some vendors have asked the company to consider allowing qualified security vendors to modify the kernel. They point to the fact that they have been allowed to do so with 32-bit versions of Windows and argue that it should be allowed on 64-bit Vista as well. Source: Computerworld

Security vendors still want to be able to manipulate the kernel, like they have been able to do until the release of Patchguard, but Microsoft says it is key to the prevention of malware such as rootkits, if the security vendors can get around it, then so, one day, will some of the malicious programmers. Some of the vendors like Symantec say Microsoft is hindering their abilities to deliver some features of their software and that they need to be able to manipulate the kernel to use host based intrusion-prevention and tamper protections. I say, just do antivirus, I worked on a pc today that had Symantec Security suite installed, which has a firewall, spyware protection, the intrusion detection and loads of stuff running. Even with all of that, it was still ate up with spyware and crap, and after uninstalling it, the system acted like I had reloaded the operating system, it was that much faster. So, Symantec, MacAfee and whoever else that might be listening, just make good antivirus like we are used to, your software slows down our machines more than the spyware and malware does.

Wireless Client Update for Windows XP

Microsoft has finally patched the hole in their Wireless Security Client that I posted about here, as detailed on the Security Fix website here, although most would consider this a security update, Microsoft apparently does not, as it does not show up on Windows Update, even when you look under optional updates. You can read about it and install it from Microsoft’s site here.

The upshot of all this is bad guys can take advantage of these behaviors, as I wrote in January at the Shmoocon hacker conference, where security gadfly Mark “Simple Nomad” Loveless called attention to this problem. Loveless showed that by sniffing the wireless requests sent out by a target XP machine, an attacker can learn the name of a previously associated network and force the target to connect directly to the attacker’s PC, which for all intents and purposes appears to the would-be victim as just another wireless access point (assuming the victim is even paying attention during all of this.)

“In a hall of 400-500 engineers, we hijacked upwards of 100 clients instantly, enough that our Linux laptop became unstable from all the wireless traffic passing through it,” Dai Zovi recalled in a write-up sent to the Bugtraq security mailing list. “In practice, since nearly every roaming laptop has at least one unencrypted hotspot network in [its] preferred/trusted networks, almost all Windows XP and Mac OS X laptops are susceptible to this kind of attack.”

Dai Zovi continues: “The rogue access point coerces the client into connecting to the attacker’s machine, thus obviating the firewall. This usually requires the user having Web or mail software running, but automatic outbound network requests from [those kinds of programs are] very common and these may be attacked.”

This is possible because a laptop with a wireless connection looks for access points it has previously connected to, so it will auto connect to a laptop that says it is one of those previous access points. From Microsoft’s site,

A computer that has the WPA2/WPS IE Update installed lets users manually configure options for WPA2 authentication and encryption. However, until the Wireless Client Update is installed, network administrators cannot centrally configure WPA2 options by using the Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies node of Computer Configuration Group Policy. Computers that have Windows XP Service Pack 2 and the Wireless Client Update installed can apply these configuration options when they configure the computers by using Computer Configuration Group Policy.

On a computer that is running Windows Vista or that is running Microsoft Windows Server Code Name “Longhorn,” you can specify WPA2 options when you configure wireless networks by using the Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies node of Computer Configuration Group Policy. Source: Microsoft

This article from Bugtraq talks about how this has been around since 2004.

Our driver responds to EVERY Probe Request as it operates in HostAP mode. The wireless network is “cloaked”, so it does not send out any beacons, but when a client in range sends a Probe Request for a network (“tmobile”, “linksys”, “megacorp”, etc), the driver will respond as if it were that network. In this way, it acts as a virtual AP for any network requested. This yields an extremely effective attack that is able to cause nearly all unassociated wireless clients within range to join the rogue network. KARMA also includes a tool for passively monitoring probe requests sent out by nearby wireless clients and a framework for exploiting client-side vulnerabilities once the client has joined the rogue network (no live exploits are included, though).

In addition, our driver uncovered vulnerabilities in drivers for 802.11b-only cards where they probe for randomly generated network names when the card is not associated to a network. When the KARMA driver responds to this probe, the card and host will join the network and DHCP an address, etc. I reported this to both Microsoft and Apple in the Spring last year. Apple has subsequently fixed the issue [3] and Microsoft said that a fix would be in the next service pack.

Again, this is not entirely new stuff. Max Moser released his HotSpotter [4] tool in April 2004 to create a HostAP based on sniffed Probe Requests. We first released our driver implementing the parallel attack in February 2005 at Immunity’s Security Shindig in NYC. However, awareness of these issues appears to still be low.

Update: I just noticed the date on the Microsoft site, guess I need to be better at following up on my posts, looks like this has been out about three weeks already.

Is Windows Vista Anti-Piracy Already Beaten?

Could Microsoft anti-piracy in Vista already be hacked? Hackers are distributing a file that will let users get around the built anti-piracy in Windows Vista Enterprise editions, it allows them to spoof the Key Management Service, or KMS, of Windows Vista which allows big businesses to run a authorization server on their own network, allowing them to authenticate Vista installs without contacting Microsoft.

Windows Vista must be “activated,” or authorized by Microsoft, before it will work on a particular machine. To simplify the task of activating many copies of Vista, Microsoft offers corporate users special tools, among them Key Management Service (KMS), which allows a company to run a Microsoft-supplied authorization server on its own network and activate Vista without contacting Microsoft for each copy.

The software Microsoft.Windows.Vista.Local.Activation.Server-MelindaGates lets users spoof that KMS process, allowing them to activate copies of the enterprise editions of Vista, its creators say. The hacked download is available online on sites including The Pirate Bay and other file sharing sites.

The MelindaGates hack allows users to download a VMware image of a KMS server which activates Windows Vista Business/Enterprise edition, its creators claim. Source: InfoWorld

This will be blocked pretty quickly, I am sure, especially if you have to connect to a VMWare image of a KMS server, this will probably be blocked before the day is over, unless the hackers are pretty good at hosting it on different servers, or servers that can’t be controlled or taken down by law enforcement. This is only the first salvo, there will be many more, some will work, some won’t, but it will be a continuing battle for Microsoft to stop piracy of their software.

Microsoft Speaks Up About the Zune Player

After taking much criticism of their latest product, the Zune Media Player, this week Microsoft spoke up about some of their plans for Zune and how this year is just a beachhead, or first landing, so to speak. They expect to sell 1 million players be the end of the fiscal year, June 2007, which would give them somewhere between 10 to 20 percent of the market currently enjoyed by the Apple iPod, which is not too bad of a first year. They also mention that some of the features that they don’t have compared to the iPod are ones that most users don’t use much, and are ones that they will be adding as time goes on.

Assuming that happens, Zune isn’t a total wash, as the number one non-iPod product in the over-$200 MP3 player market during last year’s holiday season only sold a tiny fraction of that amount. It’s also worth nothing that Zune went from the first whiteboard scribbles to finished product in about 10 months, a monumental feat for a company that isn’t particularly well know for moving quickly.

The key to Microsoft’s decision to make the Zune, I was told, is that while Apple controls 75 to 80 percent of the overall market for MP3 players, Apple completely controls the only parts of the market that make money (i.e. large capacity MP3 players). For all of its work creating the underlying technologies for the PlaysForSure initiative, Microsoft watched as its numerous hardware partners, collectively, managed only to steal tiny amounts of share in the low-end flash memory player part of the business. This is not a sustainable business model, I was told.

This holiday season, then, is a “beachhead” period for Microsoft, during which it is trying to change people’s perceptions of the MP3 market from “Apple and everyone else” to “Apple and Microsoft and everyone else.” From this perspective, the company has been somewhat successful. Despite lukewarm reviews, the Zune is a hotly debated topic among influentials. Looking forward, Microsoft intends for Zune to be profitable in 12 to 24 months. “This is the fuel we need to go after Apple on a long-term basis,” I was told. Source: WindowsITPro

They plan to launch and ship many updates for the Zune player and will be adding new devices with more unique features. They are currently readying the first update for some bug fixes and things current users will appreciate, but this update does not contain any new features, especially the one everyone wants, more WiFi stuff baby.

Microsoft is also readying its first software update for the Zune. The update will allow the Zune to work with Windows Vista, Microsoft’s just-finished operating system, which is now available to businesses and goes on sale to consumers in January.

The Zune software update, which is expected before Christmas, will fix some minor glitches and add some performance and other improvements, Microsoft said. The company won’t include major new features in the release, however. Source: News.com

Bill Gates said they are just going to do media, they are going to do more, and they expect to spend several hundred million dollars to develop and market the Zune Media Player.

Windows Vista Professional Released Today

This only means something if you are a volume customer with Microsoft, if you buy licenses in bulk, you can start to get Windows Vista today. For the rest of us, January 30th 2007 is the date. May as well be the date for businesses too I would say, Windows XP has been the best operating system to ever come from Microsoft and few, if any will adopt it in bulk, but there will probably be some testers, like the IT guys who will want a copy to play with and get used to before they have to start supporting it, or maybe some of the upper level guys who want to test stuff before deploying, but for the most part, I would say most businesses will upgrade when they replace their pc’s. At least, that is how I would do it, small groups to start, hopefully some of your more “techie” employees.

Microsoft and computer vendors contend that Vista will make Windows machines more secure, powerful and graphically dynamic, especially when combined with other products Microsoft is releasing simultaneously. Those include new back-end server software for businesses, as well as Office 2007, which brings sweeping changes to widely used programs such as Word, Outlook, Excel and PowerPoint.

But even with all the touted improvements, analysts expect Vista to only gradually emerge, especially in big organizations where upgrading can be a costly, complicated affair. Gartner Dataquest predicts that it will be 2010 before Vista outnumbers the previous operating system, Windows XP, on business computers. Source: AP on Yahoo

In the article, Lenovo says Vista will help their data backup tools, and the article sites the availability of many open source replacements for Vista and Office, but I don’t think any of those tools are ready to put much of a dent among anyone other than highly technical users. A USAToday article on Yahoo says,

The dual launch of Windows Vista and Office is among the most significant by Microsoft in years. The Windows and Office product lines are the software maker’s most profitable, accounting for about half of its $10.8 billion in first-quarter revenue. But neither has had a major upgrade in years. For Microsoft to maintain its cash cows, it is imperative that it persuade a large swath of the hundreds of millions of current Windows and Office users worldwide to shift to the new versions, software analysts say.

“For a fat man, Vista is pretty light on its feet,” says Roger Kay, president of Endpoint Technologies Associates, a market research firm that tested Vista. “Even though it is larger and more powerful than XP, it runs better.”

“Most consumers follow the same path: They buy computers when old ones break, when prices come down, or when a lifestyle event triggers the purchase,” Schadler says. Source: USAToday on Yahoo

That’s a good quote, and while Vista may be a lot better than XP, the old saying, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it comes to mind. Microsoft still predicts that this OS will be adapted faster than any other they have had and they expect to sell 2 million copies in the first two years. But, like we’ve said, XP is it’s biggest block to upgrading. Maybe Microsoft should make an interim version of Vista that sucks, like ME did, so it will be easier to get users to upgrade from, hehe, talk about reversal of what you are doing. Who would’ve thought that making better software would make it harder to sell your new stuff.

According to PCWorld, Japan is high on upgrading and may be some of the earliest adopters,

Microsoft Japan has 57 companies that have said they’ll roll out at least one of the three products. The list includes Sharp, Sanyo Electric, McDonalds Holdings Company (Japan), Nikon, Chubu Electric Power, computer game maker Capcom, and trading company Itochu.

Interest from potential users in Japan has been high, according to Huston. Of 5 million downloads and 1 billion user sessions conducted as part of the beta testing for Windows Vista, about 20 percent have been by users in Japan. The country accounts for about 10 percent of the global IT market.

Speaking in Tokyo, Jay Jamison, leader of Microsoft’s Windows business group in Japan, said, “We are hopeful and optimistic that in Japan Windows Vista will be the most successful business OS release of Windows ever.” Source: PCWorld on Yahoo

Later on today, Microsoft will be holding launch events in Munich, London, Paris, Toronto, and New York, to name a few. Hope I can get my free copy of Windows Vista ordered today.

Microsoft has released a press release on their detailing when and how you can watch replays of the webcast of the news conference. News conference at NASDAQ also marks Microsoft?s 20th year as a publicly traded company.

What: Microsoft Corp. will host a news conference and live webcast to announce the availability of the Windows Vista operating system, the 2007 Microsoft? Office system and Exchange Server 2007 for business customers with volume license agreements. Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer will celebrate this historic product launch, which coincides with Microsoft?s 20th year as a publicly traded company, by ringing the bell to open the NASDAQ market.

Who: Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, Chris Liddell, CFO of Microsoft, and executives from Microsoft customer and industry partner companies

Where: NASDAQ MarketSite event at Times Square in New York, 43rd St. and Broadway; a live webcast of the news conference will be available. Source: Microsoft CEO to Kick Off Launch of New Windows, Office, Exchange Products

According to a post on the Windows Vista Team Blog, they have created a virtual launch site, MSnewday, this site has links to the launch keynote, videos of the Microsoft executives, a Partner Showcase illustrating how other companies are preparing for deployment, live footage from the event being held at NASDAQ in NYC, and a forum for discussing business value.

New Version of Windows Genuine Advantage Coming

And it’s bringing new checking abilities with it. Microsoft is preparing to push out the latest version of it’s controversial WGA, Windows Genuine Advantage, tool to Windows XP users in the coming weeks. Some of the things that have changed, are the installation is more clear on what it actually does, and a change to the wording if your PC is found “not genuine”. The new version will state: “Your system did not pass genuine validation.” Oh, yah, that should explain it all to Grandma and Grandpa, hehe.

“We received a lot of feedback that people wanted more information when the package came down through Automatic Updates and was offered to them,” Lazar said. The first screen of the new version gives an introduction to WGA Notifications in plain English, explains the benefit and the possible consequences if the XP copy is pirated, he said.

“It is necessary because we continue to discover new, compromised product keys,” Lazar said. “We want to update our notifications and validation tool from time to time to also check for those compromised keys.” Source: Security at ZDnet

So, we should be expecting a fresh new round of complaints from users, both who pirate and who buy it, since both had troubles on this last version. They plan on updating the tool every 3 or 4 months.

Another Bad Review for Zune

Just read this post at iTWire called Why consumers are angry with Microsoft over Zune where he describes his experience with the Zune MP3 player from Microsoft, the Zune marketplace software installation he had trouble with because he was using Firefox and goes on to describe why he thinks consumers are angry with Microsoft over the Zune. I say he thinks because he just references himself, so I don’t think he is talking for a group of people.

The first time I tried to download the Zune software, it wouldn’t let me even though my system met the Zune software standards – Win XP SP2, a processor that runs at least at 1.5GHz, memory of at least….hang on what is this nonsense anyway!? I got none of this minimum hardware requirements rubbish when I installed iTunes 7, which installed without hitch in exactly five minutes.

Of course he is comparing 1st generation to 7th generation software, if you go by the version alone, I didn’t do any searching to confirm it, but I remember problem reports with iTunes when it first came out. But you would think Microsoft would try to convert everything they find using the PlaysForSure DRM that windows media player uses, its common courtesy. So, this is not a good comparison, even though Microsoft should’ve had it more polished to start with, being that this has already been done well somewhere else.

The point of all this is that Microsoft seems to have taken the one major thing that consumers don’t like about iPod and iTunes – the DRM restricted closed system – and ignored all the good things. Instead of presenting Joe and Jane consumer with a viable alternative to iPod, Microsoft Zune has given consumers a poorer imitation of the same. That’s why consumers are angry and Zune players, despite massive publicity are still sitting on store shelves.

This is definitely closer to the truth. But I wouldn’t pay for a first generation anything, if I wasn’t getting a Zune from somewhere for free, I would not end up with one for probably a couple years anyway. Heck, I think I bought my first iPod a little over a year ago, so, I really haven’t been any early adopter of much, although that is changing.

First Zune Hacks Released

I’ve posted before, Share a Song with Zune and Get Credit Back and iPod the Pong of Digital Music, about the Zune DRM and how it will probably be cracked soon after release, well, this isn’t a crack, but someone has developed a complicated hack to bypass the DRM, and while this is pretty much the same thing as copying a file to a USB drive and then to another computer, this just shows you how quickly something will probably be coming. How hard would it be to write a little program that does this for you? Not to hard I don’t think, and while Microsoft could probably fix this easily in a future update, would they really want to?

How great would it be to have an MP3 player that can send other MP3 players songs without restrictions? I think that would be a popular MP3 player, and if Microsoft has tried to create the Zune to block such sharing, with their DRM, they have tried right? This could definitely help Microsoft get a jump in market share, it’s not their fault these Zune Hacks have been released.

Now, I’m not saying they are up to anything, I’m just trying to come up with a reason for Microsoft to not block such hacks, or at least not for awhile, and in an update that we don’t have to load, so we could choose not to block that hack, etc.

Anyway, this started as a way to use the Zune as a portable hard drive, and then all they had to do was bypass the DRM, and they did that by renaming file extensions on the music files to jpg, transferring with at least one actual jpeg file to another Zune and renaming to the actual extension again. There’s already one program created to make it easier to do, check the Zune Boards with the tutorial there once you sign up to the board. This was also posted at Gizmodo here and here and at Zune Scene.

The Zune can be used to store and transfer various file formats such as zip files, PDF files and word documents. No Zune hardware or software changes are required at all. This technique will not bypass any DRM on any protected files.

Instructions are included below. The Zune device will appear in “My Computer” and visual access to files is available. Please make these registry modifications at your own risk to your PC. Source: Zune Scene.

Zune tips or Zune hacks, whatever you want to call this one, there will be more on the way.
