They did give me something in return; they didn't take legal action against

happened a little over a year ago; so I'm not sure if it's even still valid.
They just think that since I knew about Microsoft's security problems, that
I had compromised their systems (even when I explained to them that I found
out about the vulnerabilities through publicly available sources, and it was
there own fault for advertising that they had all of those insecure
