Two held for conspiracy to hack Microsoft network

London: Detectives in Britain have arrested two men in connection with an international "conspiracy" to hack the Microsoft network, a media report said.

According to a Thursday report in The Registrar, the detectives -- based in the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU) -- were now investigating "unauthorised intrusion into networks that Microsoft owns" between January and March.

"This group is spread around the world and therefore the investigation is being coordinated with our various partners (including Microsoft, the FBI, EUROPOL and the NCA's National Cyber Crime Unit)," a detective was quoted as saying.

"No customer data was accessed and we are confident in the integrity of our software and systems. We have comprehensive measures in place to prevent, detect and respond to attacks," the statement from Microsoft added.
