I read the New Year’s Eve missive from Microsoft, a company which tries to be “transparent, “Microsoft Internal Solorigate Investigation Update.” I am not sure, but I think the Microsoft Word spell checker does not know that SolarWinds is not spelled Solarigate. . . .
Microsoft is downplaying:
- Malicious code within Microsoft’s systems
- The code performed “unusual activity” whatever this actually means I don’t know
- The malicious code made it to MSFT source code repositories
- Whatever happened has allegedly been fixed up.
