I'd be interested in hearing what you have to say about the hacker's claim at:
"d) I'm able to issue windows update, Microsoft's statement about Windows Update and that I can't issue such update is
totally false! I already reversed ENTIRE windows update protocol, how it reads XMLs via SSL which includes URL, KB no,
SHA-1 hash of file for each update, how it verifies that downloaded file is signed using WinVerifyTrust API, and... Simply
I can issue updates via windows update!"
