Oh dear. This comes not long after the previous hacking.

A Microsoft blog has been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army shortly after two of its Twitter accounts and another blog were attacked by the same group.Syrian Electronic Army Hacks Microsoft Blog, Again [bbc.co.uk]
After the attack the SEA addressed a tweet to Microsoft which said: "Changing the [content management system] will not help if your employees are hacked and they don't know about it."
Microsoft said that the accounts had been "reset".

Interesting that other sites are reporting that they moved to a WordPress-based solution for their blogs.

If some employees were compromised, then changing the CMS won't fix the problem.
