Microsoft now notifies affected users.

 

The company revealed yesterday that unauthorized people have been able to gain access to several Outlook.com accounts because someone who is employed in the support department has been hacked.

 

The result has been that the hackers have access to e-mail addresses, folder names, and e-mail topics. However, the actual content of the emails and attachments has been unavailable.

 

The number of users affected by the break-in is not known, but according to Microsoft, the hackers had access for several months - from January 1 this year to March 28
