Hackers Hit Microsoft Store in India
A group of hackers by the name Evil shadow team managed to get their way into the Microsoft Store web site and tampered with the users’ database. Those who visited the site yesterday morning were shocked to see the trademark hackers’ image of a masked figure staring at them. Microsoft has so far managed to get the store back into their control but the hackers warned of severe action in the future.
The main reason why they managed to hack the system was because the password of users and administrator was saved in plain text instead of being encrypted. It is believed the hackers did a random check of websites with security loopholes and landed on India’s Microsoft Store.
