Yesterday a former Microsoft employee pleaded guilty to falsely purchasing six million dollars worth of server software and selling it for personal gain.


Kori Robin Brown, 31, is the third person accused of taking advantage of an internal Microsoft system that allowed employees to order unlimited amounts of software meant for internal use.


Brown, a former administrative assistant in Microsoft's Xbox division, now faces up to five years in a federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
