On New Year’s Day, the Syrian Electronic Army hacked Skype’s Twitter account and its official Microsoft blog, allegedly in order to warn people away from Microsoft’s email services. Today, the hackers appear to be at it again. This morning, they broke into the Microsoft News Twitter account, and now they’ve hijacked the entire Official Microsoft Blog, turning it into a giant automatic redirect to their own propaganda website.
