Microsoft's Having a Rough Time Thanks to the Syrian Electronic Army

By Robert Sorokanich on at

Yesterday, Microsoft's official blog, Xbox Support and @MSFTnews Twitter account were hacked, the latter sending out anti-Microsoft messages which have since been deleted. The Syrian Electronic Army is taking credit for the attack, but Microsoft says the situation is under control and no customer data was compromised. The first hacked tweets went out early yesterday afternoon and were quickly removed.

These hijinks come not long after Skype was hacked in similar fashion by the same group on New Years Day.
