So, once again Redmond gets leaked. The much awaited Windows 7 Service Pack 1 which was due for release up late this month has apparently been leaked onto some Torrent sites.

Redmond hasn’t confirmed a date for the release of Windows 7 SP1 yet. Despite that, a pre-release copy of the minor updates package appears to be unofficially available for download online.

When asked about a formal comment on the concern, Microsoft did not provided any input as so far.

In March Microsoft’s Brandon LeBlanc said in a blog post that a service pack for Windows 7 would be released containing minor security updates and feature tweaks. However, he did not reveal when Windows 7 SP1 would land.

As we’ve previously reported, Microsoft tends to stick to a pretty standard timeframe with its operating system service pack releases. Based on that logic, it’s fair to surmise that the company probably won’t spin out Windows 7 SP1 until late 2010 at the very earliest.

Last month, Microsoft revealed a few more details about Windows 7 Service Pack 1, confirming it would involve a small-fry update to the operating system. However, the software vendor didn't reveal when a finalised version of Windows 7 SP1 - nor indeed a beta - of the updates package would land
