Actually Microsoft was hacked. I went to download Microsoft Security Essentials from the Microsoft site
and noticed before installation that the executable was not signed. Also, google reported the site had no

News now popping out they got lots of machines hacked.

How about some links to your reports of hacking. MS said they had certificates that expired on Friday and they did not get their system updated.

No evidence of hacking, just some idiot dropped the ball.
