I have heard rumors that running Windows Update in China may result in compromised patches being applied. Apparently, China forced Microsoft to disclose its signing certificate for updates and China also has significant control over its DNS servers, so they could redirect you to their own servers and apply their own compromised updates. Is there any proof of this ever having happened or is this just a crazy conspiracy theory?
