Microsoft, some email accounts consumer compromised by the hacker attack
Web services, Microsoft mail, how to outlook.com, live.com and hotmail.com have been affected by a hacker attack. The criminals have managed to steal the credentials of a technical support person, and they were able to steal information such as addresses, message subject, and all of the addresses that have participated in the conversation. It was not possible to steal passwords and attachments, according to Microsoft - which in the meantime is facing a hole in his outdated browser Internet Explorer 11.
The hole remained open for a little less than three months, from 1 January to 28 march. Microsoft has confirmed the attack publicly, and said he had already started to contact all the involved accounts. On how many there are, there is a lot of clarity: the company is limited to saying "a small group", but inside sources of the Motherboard say that the situation is much more serious than said in public. In essence, hackers had potentially access to any account consumer: those of the company, however, remained safe.
The Motherboard also supports that the hackers could also gain access to data such as the calendar, the date of birth, the names of the email folders and the complete body of the message - the detail, this last, that Microsoft has denied. The header says that its source has provided a screenshot of the support portal as proof of the claims. The source also claims that the flaw has been open for six months, not three, but Microsoft has denied this, reiterating the dates at first.The top of the range 2018 the most complete on the market?
