Microsoft Will Start Warning On Possible State-Sponsored Attacks

Microsoft has jumped on the “we will warn users of possible state-sponsored hacking” bandwagon. “Microsoft told Reuters about the plan in a statement. It comes nine days after Reuters asked the company why it had decided not to tell victims of a hacking campaign, discovered in 2011, that had targeted international leaders of China’s Tibetan and Uighur minorities in particular.” This service mentions Outlook.com specifically. It’s not clear if users of other Microsoft services would be warned.
