    As far as I understand it, Microsoft did break a NDA. That's important to notice. The question is about trust. Imagine what would happen if you break a NDA with Microsoft and Microsoft doesn't like it.....

    I guess this story is not over yet.

    As far as I saw there's not yet a reply from Fox-IT on this "interview".

    Well, a lot of discussion at the link posted by Ron, and I'm sure elsewhere too.

    As I said already, this story is not over yet.

    But may I take also another, positive, approach in the hope for a positive outcome in someway for the future:
    Soon there will be "The Counter eCrime Operations Summit" (CeCOS VI) in Prague. Wouldn't that be a good opportunity for all parties involved to talk about it, to try to gain trust in eachother again (yes, I know, trust must be earned), to try to avoid PR-talk, to work together again, all with only one goal: to get the bad guys out as much as possible.
    That would be my wish.
