Ex-Microsoft employee arrested for leaking copies of Windows 8

Posted by: Jennifer Cefai (2 years, 7 months ago)

Alex Kibkalo, a software architect and a former Microsoft employee, has been accused of liasing with a French technology blogger to pass on trade secrets and copies of Windows 8. This malpractice came as a result of of a poor performance review from his former employer, which Kibkalo apparently took considerable exception to. Kibkalo has also been accused of stealing Microsoft's "Activation Server Software Development Kit," which is typically used to prevent piracy. The blogger in question spread this online, in order to allow others to bypass Microsoft's activation requests. Kibkalo's trial began yesterday in a US district court, after a year of investigations and his subsequent arrest in Seattle.
