Microsoft’s Golden Key has been leaked, and it shows why the government should stop asking for Backdoors.
Backdoors in software are built for detecting criminals by listening to the conversation. As we should sometimes also lock these Backdoors for security using some keys.
But this time, the Golden Key of Microsoft has been leaked, and this news was revealed by the Security researchers MY123 and Slipstream a Couple of days. It says that Microsoft has accidentally leaked Security keys that allow Windows-based computers, phones, and tablets to be unlocked and loaded with other operating systems, as well as malicious software like rootkits. And now it’s impossible for the company to render the leaked keys useless.
This Security key is now publically available and can be misused for their needs.
That’s the reason why the Government and law enforcement agencies should stop asking tech companies to build backdoors into their products and software.
Some previous cases are still new, like the Sun Bernardino shooter’s iPhone, which the FBI wanted to unlock. The Government should now stop such Backdoors into the software from misuse.
