Skype blog, Facebook and Twitter accounts hacked by Syrian Electronic Army

Hacking group, the Syrian Electronic Army, appears to have hacked the blog, Facebook and twitter account of Microsoft’s video messaging platform, Skype.

Skype’s Twitter account tweeted a link to it’s blog, which included a message with the title ‘Hacked by Syrian Electronic Army.. Stop Spying!’ and a link which included the author name of Skype’s social media manager, Shana Pearlman.

A second tweet included the crest of the group, which features a falcon.

At the time of writing, neither Microsoft nor Skype has released any official statement on the hacking although it had deleted both tweets within an hour.

The online hacking group, which describes itself as "a group of enthusiastic Syrian youths who could not stay passive towards the massive distortion of facts about the recent uprising in Syria" has also previously hacked the Twitter account of The Associated Press.
