SAN FRANCISCO – A Microsoft Twitter account was reportedly hacked by a group that posted an odd message on Saturday, according to media reports. A post on the Microsoft News account warned users not to use the company's email systems because, "They are monitoring your accounts and selling the data to the governments," according to a report on CNET. The tweet was no longer posted on Microsoft News. Microsoft could not immediately be reached for comment. The hacking was reportedly carried out by the Syrian Electronic Army.
