15, 2014

Syrian Electronic Army which recently hacked some of the Microsoft’s social media accounts threatened Microsoft on Twitter that they are not yet done with Microsoft and there will be more attacks in the future.

We didn’t finish our attack on @Microsoft yet, stay tuned for more! #SEA

The worst part is that SEA has got access to Microsoft employee emails as well. You can see the communication between Microsoft Story Teller Steve’s mail to his boss on recent attacks by SEA. See the screenshot below,

SEA even tweeted that a Microsoft employee changed his password from Microsoft1 to Microsoft2 to make it stronger. I guess, Microsoft will come up with more stronger internal policies when it comes to passwords to prevent such attacks in the future.
