Microsoft's Having a Rough Day Thanks to the Syrian Electronic Army

Today, Microsoft's official blog and the @XBoxSupport and @MSFTnews Twitter accounts were hacked, the latter sending out anti-Microsoft messages which have since been deleted. The Syrian Electronic Army is taking credit for the attack, but Microsoft says the situation is under control and no customer data was compromised.

The first hacked tweets went out early this afternoon and were quickly removed, while as of this writing, the Microsoft official blog can't be accessed without a username and password. The hijinks come not long after Skype was hacked in similar fashion by the same group on New Years Day.
