Microsoft kept quiet on details of 2013 cyber breach: report
A secret, internal database that Microsoft uses to track bugs in its software was compromised by a hacking group more than four years ago, according to five former employees who spoke with Reuters.
Microsoft did not publicly disclose the extent of the breach when it discovered the hack in 2013.
The stolen database reportedly included descriptions of important vulnerabilities that had not yet been fixed.
