Recently, Microsoft Joined the List of Hacked Companies

Microsoft has disclosed that it recently fell victim to the same type of cyberattack that targeted Apple and Facebook.
"During our investigation, we found a small number of computers, including some in our Mac business unit, that were infected by malicious software using techniques similar to those documented by other organizations," the company said on its Security Response Center website Friday.
"We have no evidence of customer data being affected and our investigation is ongoing," it said.
Microsoft joins a list of companies that've recently reported being hacked, including Facebook,Apple, Twitter, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
Apple and Facebook were both targeted via a vulnerability in Oracle's Java platform, and Microsoft said Friday it was hit by a similar attack.
"This type of cyberattack is no surprise to Microsoft and other companies that must grapple with determined and persistent adversaries," it said.
