Microsoft grounds 'dirty' Santa

Microsoft acted quickly to shut down its automated instant messaging elf after it was reported that it was chatting about taboo topics.

Microsoft shut down the automated Santa Claus that it created for children to chat with on Windows Live Messenger, after an article from The Register reported that it had an objectionable chat with a reader's underage nieces. Microsoft said Santa's comment on oral sex was provoked by a person who could make the tool "do things it wasn't supposed to do." Santa ended the chat with a cheery, "dirty bastard."
