Former Microsoft Employee Involved In Windows 8 Leaks Sentenced To 3 Months In Prisonment


Former Microsoft employee Alex Kibkalo will pay a $100 fine and serve three months in prison for stealing trade secrets after pleading guilty. Kibkalo, a Russian national, was working for Microsoft in Lebanon when he sent an anonymous French blogger source code for the version of Windows 8 used by ARM devices, as well as Microsoft’s Activation Server Software Development Kit, which Microsoft uses to ensure that a user isn’t running pirated software. He was arrested in Seattle in March of this year.
