Security Fault in Microsoft Help and Support Portal

Microsoft recently revamp their help and support portal which definitely better user interface. As I’m searching for some article, I found something that is so interesting…….

The page definitely catch my attention with is new UI and seems easier to navigate. Once I select a link, it seems to me like a broken link.

When I look closely…… it give me a shared folder path.

To investigate again, I navigate again back to the previous page and it is very sure that the links is CORRECT!

We usually use "file//" for accessing internal server file.

So now obviously we know that there is a server named "tk2msftspskbcr1".

I think the developer who upgrade this portal don’t really do a testing before put the project to live.
