Hackers Temporarily Gain Control Of Official Xbox Twitter Account, Microsoft Regains Control Shortly Afterwards

It seems like the bad days for Microsoft are not over as it appears that SyrianElectronicArmy managed to temporarily hack the official twitter account of Xbox and the official Xbox Support twitter account.

The hackers started posting their own messages after taking control of both accounts, as can be seen in screenshots below.

Although, it seems like Microsoft was quick to regain control and delete their tweets. Although, it appeared that the hackers still had some control as evident by one of their tweet, that was sent after Microsoft deleted all of their old ones.


This tweet was again deleted pretty quickly. These same hackers have also hacked Skype’s homepage and facebook account last week. Skype is owned by Microsoft so seems like it became their next target.
