Microsoft India’s retail website hacked

In the latest case of website defacing in the country, software giant Microsoft India’s retail website has been hacked, forcing the company to shut it down temporarily.

According to reports, the company’s retail website (www.microsoftstore.co.in), which sells Microsoft products, was hacked by a Chinese group called Evil Shadow Team.

Confirming the attack, a Microsoft spokesperson said the website has been taken down and "Microsoft is investigating a limited compromise of the company’s online store in India".
