StarForce releases an updated version of its protection


With the release of  an updated version of its protection, StarForce has won another victory over pirates, providing calm for publishers of licensed software.

The new version of StarForce features the “NewATAPI” technology, which, when used together with the previously announced “ISO-protection” technology, prevents bypassing the protection algorithms using IDE-interface blocking. This approach is often utilized by malicious users trying to launch the application from an illegal copy or an image of the licensed disc, using various utilities provided by crackers.

The updated version of StarForce withstands the latest cracking tools, such as the "StarForce Nightmare" utility.The new protection version was made available to StarForce’s clients on February 2, 2005. All customers get the update for free.
