Windows 10 source code has leaked.


Microsoft’s Windows 10 source code has leaked online this week.

Beta Archive is an enthusiast site that tracks Windows releases, and asks members to donate money or contribute something Windows-related if they access a free private FTP full of archived Windows builds.

The Verge understands most of the collection has been available for months, or even years.

Beta Archive owner Andrew Whyman has revealed the source code was just 1.2GB in size and has been removed.

It’s not clear if the arrests are directly linked to the source code leak, but Microsoft is evidently concerned about some potential intrusions into its networks by Windows enthusiasts.
