Turkish Hacker Hijacks Hotmail.co.il and MSN.co.il

A few hours back, the Israeli Hotmail and MSN webpages were hijacked by a Turkish hacker to display a pro-Palestinian message. According to Softpedia, the nameservers and administrative email addresses were changed. Instead of redirecting to the usual login.live.com and il.msn.com, the viewers were redirected to the page pictured below.

MSN-Hotmail-Hacked

Microsoft has regained control of the respective domain names and both the sites are currently operating normally. Microsoft has yet to respond to the hijacking and for now, the method used by the hacker to pull of this feat remains unknown. The most obvious possibility is that he used stolen credentials. However, KISS philosophy doesn’t always work. If you have any idea, don’t hesitate to share it with us.
