Microsoft India Store Hacked – Passwords In Plain Text

Patrons of the Microsoft Store in India were greeted by a black screen with Guy Fawkes with "Hacked" plastered all over. Several brute force attacks by a group called "Evil Shadow Team", where it was revealed that the user accounts and passwords were stored in plain text. You'd think Microsoft would  have learned by Sony's mistakes last year. Hopefully there weren't' too many usernames and passwords released and Microsoft reset them after having the list revealed..
