Mi­crosoft goes fur­ther on hacks

The Denver Post - - FEATURES -

Mi­crosoft says it will warn con­sumers if it sus­pects gov­ern­ments are try­ing to hack into their ac­counts, in­clud­ing Out­look e-mail and the com­pany’s cloud-stor­age ser­vice OneDrive. The com­pany al­ready in­forms users if it thinks their Mi­crosoft ac­count has been tar­geted by a third party and pro­vides guidance on how to keep those ac­counts safe. Now it will go far­ther and tell them if it thinks the at­tack­ers were “work­ing on be­half of a na­tion state,” ac­cord­ing to a blog post from Scott Char­ney, Mi­crosoft’s vice pres­i­dent for trust­wor­thy com­put­ing.
