Microsoft security bulletins using software “not licensed for commercial use”

I can’t help noticing that in the last couple of weeks, Microsoft’s security bulletin emails have been sent as PGP signed messages using a copy of PGP Desktop that is “not licensed for commercial use”.

This newsletter was sent by:
Microsoft Corporation
1 Microsoft Way
Redmond, Washington, USA

Version: PGP Desktop 10.2.0 (Build 1950) - not licensed for commercial use:
Charset: utf-8


I suppose a small struggling startup company like Microsoft can be excused for not paying to update keep their commercial licence up to date.
