Most people know that the Windows source-code is Microsoft's holy-grail. It now appears that several million lines of code dating from around mid-2000 have been leaked onto the net and are circulating through hacker channels on IRC and various sites.

Technology analysts said it was too early to assess the damage the leak may cause to users. The worst scenario is that it will allow hackers to find and exploit new security vulnerabilities in Windows NT4 and Windows 2000 software, the code could also allow rival software companies to gain a better understanding of the inner workings of Microsoft's technology.

The source of the leak remains a mystery: In their official statement ,the company said there was no indication that its corporate network had been breached. Microsoft had previously shared some of its source code with some companies, US government agencies, foreign governments and universities, under tight restrictions.
