Syrian Electronic Army (SEA)’s latest victim is Microsoft.  Today the SEA hacked the official twitter account  Skype and then used it to post a tweet against Microsoft.

The tweet posted from the Sype’s Twitter account by SEA said that 

“Don’t use Microsoft emails(hotmail,outlook),They are monitoring your accounts and selling the data to the governments and gave a link https://blogs.skype.com/2014/01/01/dont-use-microsoft-emails-hotmailoutlook-they-are-monitoring-your-accounts-and-selling-the-data-to-the-governments/ “

 

SEA then proceeded to announce that that it had hacked into Skype WordPress blog as well as its social media dashboard account and divulge information available on it suggesting that Microsoft was actively involved in the email/account monitoring scandal.  

“You can thank Microsoft for monitoring your accounts/emails using this details”

From the looks of it, the SEA seem to have hacked into the account of “Shana Pearlman” who is Content Marketing Manager at Skype and thus got entry into the Sype Twitter account and wordpress account.

As of now the Skype has managed to salvage the damage and restore both the Twitter as well as its blog to pre-hack period.  But this hacking brings Microsoft into the hackers radar.  Microsoft has thus far managed to stay away from the NSA leaks.
