Windows operating system is still the most widely used desktop operating system. From the perspective of security, its system source code can be said to be top secret for the public.
However, a number of windows source codes have appeared on foreign forums and social platforms, which seem to belong to Windows XP SP1 after confirmation, and the preliminary analysis and confirmation by security researchers are true.
Now, the source code has been packaged as a seed or spread crazily based on the network disk. Microsoft has not responded to this.
It is said that the source code also contains the Windows NT 3.5 and the first generation Xbox source files leaked in May this year. Some netizens worry that although Windows XP has ended its official support since 2014, its traffic still accounts for 1.26% of the world's total, and there are still many users in stock.
However, some security agencies have stressed that, in fact, Microsoft has been sharing XP system source code with University researchers and government agencies since 2001 to verify its security and completeness in multiple ways. In this sense, XP source code is no big deal.
