Microsoft says “Your fired”.

According to a report on MyDigitalLife, two employees involved with leaks of three Windows 8 builds have been fired.

Although Microsoft has yet to confirm the report, MDL forum user canouna says two full time employees at Microsoft, one from Russia and one from the main HQ Redmond, has had their contracts terminated for their participation in the leaks of Windows 8.

Windows 8 has seen a lot of leaks in the past few months, with enthusiasts uncovering features such as History Vault, Metro UI, account roaming, app store, etc. Windows 8 is expected to launch some time early next year.
