Microsoft's official blog and two of its twitter accounts are believed to have been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army.
The hacking group accessed the social media accounts to post pro-Syria messages and to criticise Microsoft itself.
There were several attacks carried out by activist and hacking groups throughout the weekend.
The attackers posted messages telling people to stop using Hotmail and Outlook, saying Microsoft monitored the services and sold information to the Government.
