Skype accounts hacked by the "Syrian Electronic Army"

Reports from The Verge, ZDNet and Gigaom report that the "Syrian Electronic Army" or "SEA" have hacked Skype's blog, facebook and twitter accounts.

Once the SEA got the access, they spewed several nasty anti Microsoft based messages, over and over again. Reports are saying that in some cases it was over 6000 times, especially on twitter.

It seems everyone and his uncle these days is getting their twitter or facebook accounts hacked, so it's time to re-strengthen the passwords again.

It will be interesting to see if the SEA backs up their messages with proof of some sort.

I am no Microsoft fan by any means, but I doubt anyone has the dirt to back up the SEA's statements.

Here are some of the articles I dug up myself, if you want more background information:
