Microsoft Employee Steals $10m In Xbox Giftcards


Recommended Posts

This is a pretty incredible story about a MS Engineer whose job it was to test and report bugs with their online store. He found a bug that when using a test credit card to buy an Xbox gift card, the system mistakenly sent him an active key. 

Instead of reporting it, he used it to embezzle $10 million of Gift Cards, which he traded for crypto currency. 

As someone who works for a software company that uses test credit cards to test a payments system, I can totally understand how this happened.
