Microsoft has blocked several volume license keys that have been misused in services packs, starting with Windows XP Service Pack 1. Microsoft has even developed a new key verification engine for Windows XP Service Pack 2, capable of detecting illegal keys, even those that had never been used before. Several security advisers condemned Microsoft`s move and said it was irresponsible to remove a large base for installing various security vulnerabilities, as this uncorrected installation base can be used to send spam emails during large-scale internet attacks such as Trojans. Others have Microsoft`s defense arguing that Microsoft should not provide support to illegal users. After much public outcry, Microsoft decided to disable the new key verification module. Service Pack 2 only searches for the same small list of frequently used keys as Service Pack 1. Users of existing Windows XP installations can also change their product key by following Microsoft`s instructions.
