Microsoft social media accounts hacked twice in a month!


For the second time this month, social media accounts owned by Microsoft have been targeted in a series of breaches.

According to reports from Cnet and The Next Web, the Twitter accounts representing Microsoft News and Xbox Support contained messages that appear to be from the Syrian Electronic Army.
"Don't use Microsoft emails(hotmail,outlook),They are monitoring your accounts and selling the data to the governments," read a message on the Microsoft News account with the hashtag #SEA.
The messages have since been removed from both accounts.

The breach comes more than a week after the social accounts and blog for Skype, the Microsoft-owned Internet calling service, were compromised.

"We recently became aware of a targeted cyber attack that led to access to Skype's social media properties, but these credentials were quickly reset," said Skype in a statement issued at the time of the breach.
