William P Genovese Jr, from Connecticut has been arrested on charges of selling certain parts of the Windows 2000 source code. The code was apparently leaked onto the Internet at near the start of this year, and Genovese was offering to sell a copy of the stolen code on his web site. He even set up a PayPal account to receive the funds from his customers, one of whom of course turned out to be an investigator from Microsoft and another from the FBI. If found guilty he could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
