On the one hand, MS strongly encourage all O365 Global Admins to enable and use MFA. On the other, they lock everyone out, including the admins. I wonder if the NSA or GCHQ will release details of their back doors?
Must be beer o'clock 'cos nothing else is going to get done today - and it's only Tuesday.
