wabrandsma (2551008) writes "Webwereld writes: Microsoft forces German Windows-backdoor article offline (in Dutch).

Microsoft is forcing through the courts to take a controversial article offline on internal concerns of the German government about Windows 8 and Trusted Computing. ZEIT Online is fighting the court order.

Microsoft has an ex-parte injunction enforced by the court of Munich on an article by ZEIT Online. This piece is about the dangers of Windows 8 and the Trusted Platform Module 2.0. This publication last week did stir dust worldwide. Monday the article was taken offline, but the publisher will defend itself against this provisional judgment.

The article has been previously discussed on Slashdot here German Government Warns Windows 8 Is an Unacceptable Security Risk"
