Emails stolen and leaked from Microsoft by the Syrian Electronic Army show that Microsoft can receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in charges from the government for information requests

From Neowin:

The Daily Dot reports that they received the documents from the SEA, which include emails and invoices from Microsoft to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, specifically the agency's Digital Intercept Technology Unit (DITU.) For example, the documents show that Microsoft charged the DITU $352,200 in August 2013, at $200 per information request.

Microsoft has been publishing the number of inquires it gets from governments and law enforcement agencies worldwide for the past year or so. Just a few days ago, the company revealed it had received a total of 72,279 requests for customer information in 2013.

I've been doing exactly that for 15 years or so. :) At least one small part of the picture is located where I can physically see and access it as part of an ESXi box about 3 meters away from this chair. Anyone who can set up their own mailserver(s), do it. In some cases where you might not think you can run one, dynamic dns services or other bits of "Ignore the man behind the curtain" magic may help (sorry for the wizard of oz reference lol). :jester:
