The Syrian Electronic Army has hacked a Microsoft blog again. You may recall earlier this month when the organization gained control of the company's official Skype blog and Skype social media accounts.

At the time, it advised readers against using Microsoft's email products because "they are monitoring your accounts and selling the data to the governments.”

On Monday, they gained control of Microsoft's Office Blogs site as it rolled out a new design.

Microsoft appears to be back in control of the site. We've reached out to the company for a statement, and will update as we get one.

Update: A Microsoft spokesperson tells us, "A targeted cyberattack temporarily affected the Microsoft Office blog and the account was reset. We can confirm that no customer information was compromised. Microsoft continues to take a number of actions to protect our employees and accounts against this industry-wide issue.”
