Microsoft's GitHub under fire after disappearing proof-of-concept exploit for critical Microsoft Exchange vuln


Re: What. A. Shock.

Benevolent and MS aren't words I'd ever associate even remotely. Monopolistic, undirected, incoherent mush; that's perhaps more like it. 90's MS might have been "legal evil", but I have a lot of time for DOS / 3.1. Comprehensible systems on a scale that could realistically be user controlled, that in the main, did exactly what you told them to do.

There are small pockets of MS that do good work, usually where they have gobbled up smaller outfits until the original idea is tarnished beyond belief. Things like VSCode (allegedly everyone's favourite?) or SysInternals.
