Short: WP7 Xbox Live ban capabilities, clipboard references aren’t new

Update: I’m blind. The post was posted last month, sorry.

WPCentral is reporting this afternoon that well known hacker Conflipper has discovered some “interesting” strings in a newer unleaked build of Windows Phone 7. They were quick to attribute this to new upcoming features of Windows Phone 7 but the reality is, these strings are found in the build you’re using today. Even older builds.

ieframe.dll contains various clipboard references, such as “Inserts the Clipboard contents at the insertion point”. GameUx.dll and MeUxCommon.dll contain the reported Terms of Service violation and “Banned!!!  No signin for YOU!” strings respectively.

There’s no news here.
