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.

Uhhh...if you trust ANY OS then you honestly deserve what you get, or did you forget the stink a few years back about some NSA guys working on critical parts of BSD?

The moral of this story is don't use IE, have a decent firewall, and pay attention to what is going on with your PC and network. MSFT can give first dibs to the king of the moon for all I care, they can slam into my firewall and join all the Chinese and Eastern EU hackers that slam against it every day, good luck.

You mean the bullshit thing were they supposedly put in backdoors in the IPSEC code?
Just like how you shouldn't trust the OS you shouldn't trust anything you read on the internet.
