Microsoft has just signed an agreement that lets the Russian government study the source code for SQL Server.

Microsoft has just signed an agreement with Russia’s Atlas Centre, under the Government Security Program, letting the Russian government study the source code for SQL Server, as well as other Microsoft software. “Access to source codes enables programmers from the Atlas Centre to develop encryption protection for Microsoft products and allows the government agencies, including those responsible for national security, to use them in their daily work." Also, Atlas will be able to share findings about the security of Microsoft's codes with other government agencies.
