Bangalore: Microsoft came under scanner over bribery charges. The U.S. government is investigating whether the company and its some of the business partners resorted to bribery to close deals in China, Romania and Italy, reports WSJ.

Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating whether bribe is paid to foreign officials to help close sale of software. The probe's targets include resellers of Microsoft software, company consultants and Microsoft's own employees outside the U.S., according to the WSJ, citing anonymous source.

The inquiry remains in an early stage and there have been no accusations of wrongdoing, WSJ said.

In a blog post, Microsoft lawyer John Frank said the issues raised in the Journal's story are important enough to merit a review by Microsoft and the federal government.
