Microsoft says early June service outages were triggered by cyber attacks

The Straits Times

WASHINGTON – The outages that affected certain Microsoft services on some days in early June were the result of cyber attacks. But the tech giant noted it saw no evidence of any customer data being accessed or compromised.

“Beginning in early June 2023, Microsoft identified surges in traffic against some services that temporarily impacted availability,“ the company said in a blog post.

Microsoft opened an investigation and began tracking the Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) activity by the party it refers to as Storm-1359 after it identified the threat.
