Microsoft Patched 'NSA Hack' Windows Flaws Before Leak

Microsoft says it had already fixed software flaws linked to an alleged breach of the global banking system before they were exposed last week.

On Friday, a group called the Shadow Brokers published details of several hacking tools, indicating they had been used by the US National Security Agency (NSA) to spy on money transfers.

Reports suggested Microsoft's Windows operating system remained vulnerable.

But the firm revealed it had in fact addressed the problem in March.
