Default Hurry! Windows Vista 5308 Public Download!!

It would appear that Windows Vista 5308 is available for members of the public to download from Microsoft's servers. This is almost certainly a mistake on Microsoft's part, but nevertheless - the build is publicly downloadable and appears to be identical to the version available to testers via MS Connect.

Naturally, the build can only be installed by those with a valid Windows Vista Product key, which are issued only to official testers and MSDN/Technet Subscribers. The file is 2.71GB, and is named FebCTP_5308_32bit_Main_Staged_DVD.iso.

This was a exploit found on the M$ servers. It is not the public release. Someone just found this on the M$ downloads and it got spread sround. I dont know if M$ has fixed the problem or not yet but it has been shared widely. So i doubt M$ doesnt know about it and isnt in the process of fixing it.
