    I activated my Windows 8 Enterprise (phone activation) with the key that ends with -YDR92 (MAK key)

    I am still activated, although MS has blocked the key for now. I wonder if i still can get Windows Updates with it?

    At least till SP1, if MS doesn't push a update that disables all blacklisted key's.

    drain shmain. what if someone stole MY key and ended up blacklisting it??

    Eitherway my key IS blacklisted and i get all the updates just fine. On a sidenote, MAK keys I found about 6 months ago in torrent and youtube comments are still working for phone activation :holiday:
    I show my naked tongue to "big IT bosses" :p
