Tool automates previously discussed exploit.

As previously reported, a vulnerability in Windows RT allowed a coder to bypass Windows’ lockdown on running native Windows apps.

Now a jailbreak tool has become available on the XDA Developer forums, which is a batch file that automates the previously outlined processes.

Microsoft have strangely kept quite calm about the entire affair, going so far as to simply state that the hack isn’t permanent, and must be run every time Windows RT is started up. They make be keep cool on the outside, but the minions at Microsoft are probably hard at work getting a patch ready to address this little code bug.
