A couple weeks ago, the Financial Accounting Standards Board released an audit report on how Microsoft’s software audit tools were being used.
In it, the organization says Microsoft’s audit tool, which is part of the company’s “Business Security and Compliance Suite” suite, “failed to detect the existence of vulnerabilities in the software”.
The report was released in response to a request by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which is challenging the audit.
“Microsoft’s failure to properly protect its systems and systems infrastructure could expose millions of customers and consumers to security vulnerabilities,” the EFF wrote in its filing.
The report went on to highlight a number of vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malware or hackers to compromise customer data.
“The report highlights that Microsoft’s Security Center did not properly protect critical information about the security of its products,” the audit said.
“We urge Microsoft to take immediate steps to improve its software security to prevent these kinds of vulnerabilities.”
This is the second time that Microsoft has had a security audit issue in the past year.
In March, the company released a report that found that its security systems had not been adequately protected by security researchers.
The company was subsequently forced to revise its security software to fix those problems.
Microsoft was not the only tech company that had security issues this year.
Facebook also had a similar audit, and the issue came to light because it was leaked.
A security researcher claimed to have found vulnerabilities in Facebook’s internal software.
Facebook was able to fix the problems within weeks, but the issue has been widely criticized by privacy advocates.
Microsoft’s own internal audit also found flaws in its audit tools.
It also revealed that the company had not properly implemented its internal security audit tools for its internal use.
“A lack of an appropriate audit environment can result in a failure to detect and remediate security vulnerabilities in products or services,” the company wrote in the audit report.
Microsoft has a “continued effort to make improvements” to its software audit tool and the company has acknowledged that its software is being used in the workplace.
Microsoft also released a statement that it has implemented additional changes to improve the audit process and that it is “currently working with the [EFF] to address this audit issue”.
Microsoft has been working with several cybersecurity companies to make its audit process more secure and has released a list of the organizations that it would consider for an audit.
