Windows 10 kernel source filtering

06/23/2017

According to the news portal "theverge.com", a Microsoft spokesman would have confirmed the leakage of a large amount of source code from the Windows 10 kernel, even without releasing, from Microsoft's own servers.

Among the 32TB of data that would have been uploaded to betaarchive.com, a page hosting beta versions of various products, there would be Plug-and-Play functionality code, USB and Wi-Fi drivers code and drivers Storage together with OneCore project kernel code for ARM processors. In addition, it would also have filtered confidential code from the engineering team to find bugs and test the system.

Since "betaarchive.com" has already confirmed the deletion of the files on their FTP servers and in their forums.
