Microsoft Consults Ethical Hackers at Blue Hat

For the second year in a row, Microsoft Corp. invited a small number of hackers onto its Redmond, Wash., campus to crack the companys products for all to see. Blue Hat V2 was held on Thursday and Friday and teamed noted "white hat" hackers with Microsoft employees to break into and expose security weaknesses in the companys products.

Over 1,000 Microsoft developers, managers and security experts attended, including Microsoft brass Jim Allchin and Kevin Johnson, co-presidents of the companys Platforms, Products & Services Division. The recent Blue Hat event follows a similar event held in March at the companys headquarters.
