This week Microsoft revealed that, without a warrant, it accessed the Hotmail account of a French blogger in order to track down an employee leaking source code to some of its products, ultimately leading to that employee's arrest. Microsoft's actions created an uproar among users, causing it to spell out both its means, and its justification. Microsoft claims it needs to establish if "there is evidence sufficient for a court order" before conducting any searches, as allowed under its terms of service (the ones you read and agreed to). In response, Electronic Frontier Foundation fellow Andrew Crocker calls Redmond's claim that it can't obtain a warrant on itself a false premise with massive potential for abuse. Instead of "Warrants for Windows," he argues that bringing in the FBI and obtaining a warrant is not only possible, but that it would be in line with Microsoft's policy to require a warrant before revealing user info to others.
