Microsoft said a sophisticated group of hackers linked to China has hacked into its popular email service that allowed them to gain access to computers. The company said that four vulnerabilities in its software allowed hackers to access servers for Microsoft Exchange, "which enabled access to email accounts, and allowed installation of additional malware to facilitate long-term access to victim environments," reported CNN.
