AntiSec Hackers Claim to Have Taken Down Microsoft Europe Website

The webpage is still unavailable for the time being

  Images are intermittently displayed on the site
While the Redmond-based technology company Microsoft was pretty busy letting the world know that its Surface Windows 8 Pro tablet will go on sale in February, administrators of Microsoft’s European website have been trying to fix a major outage during this whole time.

While the Redmond-based technology company Microsoft was pretty busy letting the world know that its Surface Windows 8 Pro tablet will go on sale in February, administrators of Microsoft’s European website have been trying to fix a major outage during this whole time.

AntiSec hackers from AnonymousSquadNo.035 claim to have taken down the page, according to a Twitter post, even though there’s no evidence that the website has been attacked lately.

And still, the official Microsoft Europe page is unavailable for the time being, with connection timeouts reported from several locations across the Old Continent. Even though we can’t tell for sure, a DDOS attack may be the source of the problems, as some images seem to load intermittently on the page.

Of course, Microsoft is yet to issue a statement on this, but we’ve contacted the company and we will update the article when and if we hear from the Redmondians.
