Microsoft's Office Blog Hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army after redesigned

The group known as the Syrian Electronic Army posted several articles on the Microsoft Office site, including one titled "hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army".

The Hackers are managed to hack into the blog's CMS despite Microsoft's best efforts and suggested it had access to employee login details.

The Syrian Electronic Army also attacked the official Xbox support Twitter account, while the group managed to gain access to the official Skype blog and Twitter account on January 1st. 

Microsoft has confirmed the compromise in a statement to The Verge.  "A targeted cyberattack temporarily affected the Microsoft Office blog," says a Microsoft spokesperson. "The account was quickly reset and we can confirm that no customer information was compromised.”


The SEA Group posted few screen shots that shows they have gained access to the control panel of Office blog.



"Dear @Microsoft, changing the CMS will not help you if your employees are hacked and they don't know about that," the group wrote on Twitter
