Microsoft’s XBOX Support twitter account was briefly hijacked by the hactivist group known as Syrian Electronic Army and managed to post several tweets linking to SEA’s website. But these tweets were deleted within 45 minutes after Microsoft regained control of the account. The group latest posted a screenshot on their twitter account to prove that they had access to XBOX’s instagram profile as well.

This is the 2nd time already in this month SEA gains access to Microsoft’s social accounts. SEA had announced that their actions was in reaction to Microsoft’s monitoring of user data and selling this data to the governments.
