Here we have another cd/dvd copy protection solution coming from the
Russian Protection Technology Co. According to the company the
“StarForce” cd/dvd copy protection system does not hamper to make
copies from original discs, but makes it impossible to start the
software from the copy. This happens even if the copy is made by such
famous coping programs as CloneCD, CDRWin, and Disk Juggler – this is
a matter to be checked…
The company also adds that StarForce uses unique system of disc
recognition. The system can identify whether the disk in CD-ROM is
original. When identifying the CD originality, it deciphers and
starts the exe. File. If the disk is recognized as a copy, this
information will be immediately displayed and the program start-up
will be blocked.
Something interesting to be mentioned is that Protection Technology
Co guarantees, that software, protected by the StarForce won't be
hacked for two months.
More significant info about the “StarForce” will be up after we have
the chance to test the system.
