Immediately following the arrest of former Microsoft employee Alex Kibkalo, who was convicted of leaking Microsoft proprietary software, famed Windows leaker Wzor ducked out of sight. Although it was clear at the time that Wzor wasn't involved in the Kibkalo mess, discretion was the better part of valor, and Wzor turned off his/her/their website, stopped tweeting, and (according to Wzor) stopped working with contacts inside Microsoft. The leaker briefly re-appeared in April, but has stayed silent while the Kibkalo escapade unfolded.
Now Wzor is back, claiming on a Russian-language site that he fell silent because he didn't want to post anything that could be used against Kibkalo -- never mind the fact that Wzor never did anything with Kibkalo. Wzor now states (through a shaky Russian translation), "Personally, I do not know him, and I do not think he ever wants to meet me, especially in light of events happened to him."
