"Microsoft’s authorised blog and some of its Twitter accounts were hacked over the weekend. Microsoft‘s blog and a couple of its Twitter accounts were breached by a group called the Syrian Electronic Army this past weekend. This hacking came after the New Year’s hack of Microsoft’s Skype blogging site as well as its social accounts.

Microsoft News and Xbox Support on Twitter, were also breached which replicated The Syrian Electronic Army’s previous escapades with other companies. The posts made by the Syrian Electronic Army on Twitter have since been eliminated on the social platform; however, GameSpot is still reporting that Xbox Support tweets are including comments like “Game On!” and “Syrian Electronic Army Was Here”. There is also a screenshot showing access to Instagram on Xbox as well as Twitter accounts."
