MS seem to have been comprehensively hacked - check out
http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/business/newsid_993000/993826.stm. It seems
(according to BBC & WSJ) that passwords to machines holding MS source have been
quietly emailed to an address in St Petersburg (as in Leningrad/Petrograd)
for the last 3 *months*. MS currently frantically trying to see if any
little 'mods' have been made to their source base in that time.
No sniggering at the back.
Today's food for thought. You have obtained the entire source for, say, W2k and
O2k. What do you do with it?
