Now I'm lost - MS claimed it wasn't flagged? or the senator claimed that?
Microsoft's lobbyist said it to congress: "In a response to Wyden’s written questions on Feb. 10, a Microsoft lobbyist said the identity trick, known as Golden SAML, “had never been used in an actual attack” and “was not prioritized by the intelligence community as a risk, nor was it flagged by civilian agencies.”"
So the lobbyist was wrong, at least on the last one.
Saying "the lobbyist" to make it not sound like Microsoft saying it is a marketing ploy. Microsoft's paid spokesperson representing them in the most significant way during an investigation, made this statement.
Whatever - that wasn't my point.. thanks for assuming it was.
Fine - So MS was wrong - you're saying that they can't ever be wrong in their releases?
