Remember, when the whole internet was buzzed about the hack of world’s biggest technology company’s Indian store ? At that time Microsoft claimed that only the personal information of users have been stolen from Microsoft Indian Store– which was stored in simple plan text format, surprisingly. ! Unfortunately the ‘well-calculated’ damage is much more than expected. Probably, now you will rush to your phone only to call your bank to block your credit card, used ever on Microsoft India Store.

Just few weeks back, Microsoft India Store was hacked the group of Chinese hackers which later openly published users information over the internet, claiming the illegitimate control over the users’ personal information. At that time Microsoft official statements claimed

We have confirmed that databases storing credit card details and payment information were not affected during this compromise. However, exposed account details may include non-financial related information including e-mail address, password, order details and shipping address.

But yesterday another email from Microsoft has confirmed that the damages are much in-depth than project before. Besides, the personal information, hackers got your credit information which you ever used on Microsoft India Store. The new mail from Microsoft reads;

Further detailed investigation and review of data provided by the website operator revealed that financial information may have been exposed for some Microsoft Store India customers.

Its quite surprising – an disappointing as well – that world’s biggest technology company which is itself into developing product and services to protect your crucial information from hackers did bother least about their own store data privacy. Infact it much more embarrassment for the company that it outsourced its online store to a digital marketing company – Quasar Media – which bothered least about the Microsoft brand and saved all such information in a form of plain text inside a Microsoft Access database, hackers got it easily cracked !!!!!
