Russian spy was working at Microsoft

Posted on Wednesday, July 14 2010 @ 16:50:45 CEST by

If you've been reading the news the last couple of weeks you'll probably know that the US recently arrested 11 Russian secret agents, and performed its biggest spy swap with Russia since the cold war on July 9th. We usually don't cover this kind of geopolitical news as it's not related to the primary focus of this website, but today news broke that a 12th Russian spy has been deported for "immigration violations". The man, a Russian citizen in his early 20s named Alexey Karetnikov, worked as a software tester for Microsoft since October 2009, and according to his Facebook page he was also a senior developer at Neobit, a Romanian IT firm.
Microsoft Corp. said the 12th alleged member of a Russian spy ring operating in the U.S. was an employee at the company’s Redmond, Washington, headquarters.

The man, a Russian citizen in his early 20s named Alexey Karetnikov, worked for Microsoft as a software tester for about nine months, a spokeswoman for Microsoft in Moscow, who declined to be identified in line with company rules, said by e-mail today.
