Microsoft From Bloomberg: "Microsoft, the world's largest software company, provides intelligence agencies with information about bugs in its popular software before it publicly releases a fix, according to two people familiar with the process. That information can be used to protect government computers and to access the computers of terrorists or military foes." The lid has officially been blown off.

Now we know one of the reasons they created it, and why many on USA were so pissed-off about that.


Buwahahahaha! Riiiiiiiiiiiight, the GFW is purely a defensive measure... I'm sure it has nothing to do with China being one of the most censorship-happy regimes in the industrialized world, not to mention their history of draconian control over what information their citizens can access. After all, we know that people in China can easily access sites with information about Tienanmen Square, or Tibetan/Taiwanese independence... oh, wait.

Congrats, you've posted what has to be the dumbest, most absurd claim I've seen in this entire thread. And that's saying something, given the stiff competition.
