Having spent seven years working for Microsoft, Kibkalo is alleged to have leaked Windows 8 code to a French technology blogger in mid-2012, prior to the software's release. Kibkalo was apparently angry over a poor performance review."

    This guy leaked code he had given his word to protect, tried to break into a building to copy a server, leaked more code and bragged about it being illegal. Hate M$ as much as you want, that was pretty shady.

    And what was this instant messaging thing that he was chatting on? MSN Messenger? Doesn't he know that IRC is where you go to be untraceable?
