Small Number of Microsoft Corp Computers Also Infected with Malware

Microsoft logoAlright, so you know how Facebook and Apple recently discovered that malware had silently been installed on some employees' computers after visiting the compromised iPhoneDevSDK website?

Well, it appears that Microsoft also experienced a “similar security intrusion,” which lead to a small number of computers, including some in their Mac business unit, being infected with malware using “techniques similar to those documented by other organizations.”

Microsoft says the investigation is ongoing, but so far there’s no evidence of customer data being affected by the attack.
