Microsoft said Monday it has indeed heard from Wikileaks, which had said it would contact the tech firms whose vulnerabilities were disclosed in a massive document dump on its site.

"WikiLeaks has made initial contact with us via [email protected]," a representative told Axios, adding that no information has yet been shared with the software maker.

Microsoft, Apple and Google scrambled to assess the Wikileaks data following the massive dump, but Apple and the others said they believe most of the holes mentioned have already been patched. Google and Apple representatives were not immediately available to say whether Wikileaks had been in direct contact.
