The reason Microsoft is actively pushing developers to bring their applications and games to the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 is that it can target multiple platforms simultaneously, including PCs, mobile phones, tablets, Xbox and HoloLens. But in the meantime, Microsoft also gained more control over these games, and companies also received sales commissions, and last but not least, users are getting better security. In addition, Microsoft stores can prevent piracy, which in the past proved to be a serious problem facing Microsoft. But today, the well-known cracker, CODEX, has announced that it has managed to get around five different DRM layers and successfully cracked multiple applications, including the Zoo Tycoon Ultimate Animal Collection.
These games all feature Arxan for data protection. Although these games may not be your favorite, they may be the beginning of a series of cracked UWP games. However, CODEX specifically mentioned that it should not be connected to the Internet while running cracked games, and blocking related processes in the firewall is a must thing.
Interestingly enough, Arxan had said it was almost impossible to crack its system and that now sounds awkward. Microsoft has not yet made a statement on this, did not see the specific response.
