Microsoft Store India Hacked, Passwords Leaked

Illustration for article titled Microsoft Store India Hacked, Passwords Leaked

Another day, another technology giant hacked. This time, it's Microsoft's Indian web store that's been attacked by the EvilShadow team. The big problem: Microsoft was storing passwords as plain text.

WP Sauce reports that the attack happened yesterday, with the EvilShadow team replacing the front page to Microsoft's online India store with a page called evil.html. The site is still currently down.

The hackers have also released user name and password combinations that were saved in plain text by Microsoft. If, for whatever reason, you used the Indian Microsoft store, you should probably change your passwords as soon as possible. [WP Sauce]
