Over the long weekend, a group of computer hackers known as the Syrian Electronic Army again attacked an official Microsoft social media account — this time the company’s Office blog.
The attack happened just after Microsoft unveiled a redesigned Office blog, according to The Verge, which reports that the SEA managed to post articles with the title “hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army” before the articles were removed.
Microsoft issued a statement, saying: “A targeted cyberattack temporarily affected the Microsoft Office blog. The account was quickly reset and we can confirm that no customer information was compromised.”
This follows a series of hack attacks by the SEA earlier this year, including to Microsoft’s official blog, its Twitter account, the Skype blog, the Xbox support Twitter account, and some internal emails.
In those cases, Microsoft also said the accounts were reset and that no customer information was compromised.
