Windows Earlier this week, a senior National Security Agency official told US Congress that the NSA had worked on Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 7. This spurred a flurry of rumours about the NSA building backdoors into Windows 7, but Microsoft has today categorically denied these claims.

"there is no NSA backdoor"
but a frontdoor hidden as a security flaw.

would be "news" if MS confirmed the 'feature'. "sure we have a NSA (or for whom ever) backdoor in windows". i think both customers and the NSA wont be too happy with MS saying so.

MS denying the backdoor rumors is not news to me.
